For "non-climbers" that bag on the thing, the rope becomes a noose.

Actually, everyone says what Lolli said above.....the room is enhanced by the position of the wall.

And yeah, it is a conversation piece to some.

Cool setup, Cragman! Looks like the kids are loving it. First comment my girlfriend made when I excitedly showed her this was, "That must have been a tough bargain he made with his wife" - I quickly pointed her to the post that it was not and she was quickly silenced. Good to have you back on here.

Leah was very positive about the whole thing.....it gives us one more thing to do TOGETHER as a family, especially when the weather is punk.

The kids favorite part is having the surround sound blaring...."....it's like climbing at a concert!"

Well, I make is SOUND like I did it for the kids, but truth be told.....I made that anchor so STOUT in order to haul me AND my wheelchair up someday.

We'll just call our place the Eastside Annex to the Old Climbers Home one day.

Bahaha, well...you were able to set up a ledge on it...that's pretty damn cool. Have a little self belay rig dialed in for laps when weather is bad? Or is that what the kids are for?

Gonna get some GOOD use tonight......big climbing party/going away party for Micah, who leaves this coming Monday for a 2 month stint in Ecuador.

Perfect day to utilize the wall too....45F, windy and spitting snow.
