Climbing Wall

I love climbing.  I hope to get my children involved in climbing as they grow up.  Prior to our kids, my wife and I did a lot of climbing together.  Since the birth of my daughter I haven't had many opportunities to stare at my wife's fine physique on the side of a rock wall.

To build this, I simply framed out a space at the tallest point on our deck and covered it with 3/4 inch plywood.  Then to give it a rough rock like surface, I painted it with textured deck resurfacing paint.  After the paint dried I screwed in a bunch of handmade climbing holds made by my soon-to-be brother-in-law.  

Lessons Learned: Textured deck resurfacing paint does not come out of my daughters hair very easily.
