Many gyms now have climbing walls,
which mostly resemble a rising expanse
concrete, covered with large blobs of
brightly coloured chewing gum. Great
lacking in much for stretching the
My idea is take the complete, and varied
contents of a large
department store like IKEA,
Sears or Harrods, and attach it to a wall
climbing purposes. The wall would
obviously need to be of substantial
dimensions, but happily the Halfbakery
knows few limits.
The entire value system and purpose of
various objects attached to the wall will
into an index of
hand and foothold usefulness. Larger
items such as smooth surfaced fridges
should provide a particular challenge,
whilst a Rolex watch strap would quickly
become a well worn foot hold.
Sofas and chairs would jut out at various
angles to provide resting points where
climbers might share their experiences of
swinging across the famous "wig route",
negotiating the notorious "Power-Tools
Mobile Climbing Wall
