Rock Climbing Wall Equipment

Dec 6, 2007
Today, you would find various equipment manufacturers that supply all necessary equipment for setting up indoor and outdoor climbing walls. While some only specialize in selling kits, there are many, who practically sell all kinds of climbing equipment. This includes a complete array of auto belay to ropes and climbing handholds, route setting equipment, rock climbing shoes and harnesses.

Belay devices

As many rock climbers would agree, it is essential to have locking carabineers and few belay devised while climbing. Moreover, it is necessary to use UIAA approved devices, as they are comparatively easy to train.

Rose Red point Descender

The Rose Red point Descender can be fastened to the peak of rock climbing walls, may it be indoor climbing structures or portable climbing towers. It has been designed for recreational climbing and gets rid of the necessity of having an extra climber to act as the belayer.

Climbing Shoes

Although they are not compulsory, climbing shoes are an important part of every rock climbing wall equipment kit. Always make sure you choose a comfortable, well-rounded pair of shoes. Bear in mind, if you choose to buy two pairs of shoes, you could get a good retail price of $100 per pair.

Protective Flooring

Other rock climbing wall equipments include protective flooring, which must be a standardized aspect of every rock climbing facility. It should extend at least 6ft from the climbing surface. This lessens the possibilities of sustaining injuries and helps in defining the climbing area.


The helmet is complementary rock climbing wall equipment. Although the Climbing Gym Association (CGA) has not recommended it as obligatory equipment, it definitely advises using a helmet for avoiding serious injuries.

Fasteners and handholds

Fasteners and handholds are other essential components of rock climbing wall equipment. When you buy fasteners, keep in mind that they should be congruent with the handholds, and ought to have the appropriate length to thread in the approved manner. Fasteners are useful, especially for outdoors climbing walls. For the ultimate performance of a wall handhold, the wall installers should have a total density for each two square feet of wall area. However, a density of one handhold per 3 sq. ft. wall area can also be agreeable. Always ensure that the handholds are purchased from a reputable manufacturer, as they usually sell warranted equipment.

Whenever you design a wall, it is essential not only to consider the weight the wall can withstand, but also to carefully assess the angles of the climbing wall to gauge the possibility for gravity to pull human beings. After you have determined that, you should estimate the space needed close to the wall for accommodating all possible falls.

Irrespective of the kind of rock climbing wall an individual wishes to build, there is always the want for a good design and plan that would compliment the availability of the climbing equipment. Some climbing wall companies use new sculpting designs that create natural routes on the wall and do away with the necessity for holds. Wall operators can either choose to use bolted-on holds that are given along with the wall or to completely avoid using them, giving climbers the opportunity of experiencing the challenges, they would face in outdoor settings.
