“Not a purchase but my best pandemic reuse of 30-year-old gear. What else is a now boulderer going to do with a bunch of vintage—yet pristine—hexes? All mounted on an old shovel handle I found in the yard.” (1)

“Between COVID lockdown and a hot Las Vegas summer, I was stuck inside with the blues. My cure was a Treadwall purchase. The good folks at Brewer Fitness and Kilter Grips really came through for me and got it to me ASAP. It was a bit of coin, but no regrets: I love it; money well spent. Looking forward to climbing this fall.”

“Because of COVID lockdowns, I built a variable-angle wall 12′ x 10′ with angle options at 25, 15, and 0 degrees. It pivots just over the center and locks in place to the base bulkheads by moving a large bolt and threading it into the same nut installed within the wall’s side. I installed a weatherproofed painted-steel roof on its backside, then added 110 holds from e-grips to use in an atypical dark-brown color, because I didn’t want it to look like a playground.”

“I’ve had a woody in this building (100-plus-year-old carriage house) for a long time. This summer, I took down a big chunk of the old wall and put in a Treadwall. Also added a TRX setup and did a bunch of work to improve the building and make it a nicer training space to spend time in. “
