Barn wall of Ken Delap (@1755ck) in southern Indiana. Delap lives three hours from the nearest crag so logs some solo time on his homewall. "I have been climbing for less than a year and love it," says Delap. "Started kind of late in life at 59 years old. Now I have to make up for lost time."
With a baby on the way and knowing that getting to the climbing gym would be difficult, Kris Kalisuch of San Diego, CA built the main section of this #homewall. Four years later the "kid wall" was added says Kalisuch . "We have some fun family training nights!"
Italian Symmetry: Homewall of Umberto from Italy, angled at 45 degrees. "As soon as I bought my own apartment," says Umberto, "I built my woody in the garage." Since 2003, Umberto has trained on the wall. "The holds are symmetrically placed so that when I design a sequence I must do it also in the other way."
Spencer and Vikki (@thervproject) made this wild woody and brought climbing to Burning Man in 2011. "The wall now resides in the South Bay Area as a training wall for a family who has two kids on a local climbing team," says Vikki.
Homewall of Jaime Velasco from Toluca, Mexico. “It was built 5 years ago in a small apartment,” says Velasco. “I have made some improvements, building a semi-cave with different angles (30, 40, and 45 degrees), including a roof, and a vertical face. This training spot might be the only homewall in a town of 1,030,200 inhabitants.”
Bryan Flanigan, of Greenville, South Carolina, built this freestanding woody in his studio apartment. He constructed the homewall with his dad and a friend because of “limited hours and overcrowding at the local gyms,” he says. And, “to keep the girlfriend happy.”

The Woodchuck Wall: Mark Petnuch built this outdoor woody in the Chicago area 21 years ago. “Thus, basic old school steeps, angles and roofs,” he says. The homewall is attached to a shed and the upper section pops up to make it just over 20 feet tall. “Has both ropes for belayed climbs or a big thick pole vault pit; your choice.”
Eric's ultimate family homewall: One 20-foot slab and two 20-foot overhangs. "Wife and I can climb while our two year can play on the slide," says Eric.
Hawaiian homewall of Josiah Reuter: “This is a small project the wife and I just finished. We're renting a house here on Oahu, so our 45-degree wall had to be completely independent from the rest of the room. Filled it up quite nicely though! #party.”
