Climbing wall – Part 5.

Sunday was nearly as hot as Saturday. Made even hotter by the fact that we now have all the panels on the bouldering wall, and all we have left is to finish screwing the pieces in fully, fill three small gaps with plywood, and attach some holds. It is far sturdier than I could have hoped for and the Metolius grit paint that I paid too much for turned out to be a worth while expenditure as it adds a level of texture that makes this so much more than a wooden wall.

Let’s go climbing.


Prepping to hoist the highest of all panels.


Grrr.


Safe and secure.


Let the race to the finish begin…


. . . . .


Megan and David putting the finishing touches on a panel.


At some point in the day, we announced that David deserved the title of “one who saved the weekend!” Megan and I would have had some trouble getting those panels up all by our lonesome selves. And one or both of us just might have died in the process. So thanks David!


Megan contemplates the distance to the top after we placed the final panel and the light that would envelop her when she reaches the top right corner…


The view from the ground.
