This is not my idea, but I thought it worth mentioning. If you like wall climbing but dont have the cash or space for one of those walls, just attach those hand and toe holds to a sizable tree. You can go as high as you have the nerve and use an upper branch to attach the fall arrester to. No its not
the same as a wall but its the next best thing.
||I don't mean to brag but I'm pretty sure that in my younger years I climbed trees and (gasp) I did this WITHOUT a fall-arrester, nor indeed hand or toe holds.
What you're describing is tree-climbing-for-the-scared which is not reallly a substitute for wall climbing (which in itself is not really a subsitute for rock climbing).
||Why not just buy one pair of hand-
and one pair of toe-holds and attach
them to your gloves and boots
(respectively, of course). Then you
could climb any wall you pleased.
