My husband built this climbing wall for his own use about ten years ago. Unfortunately, it was barely used at our last home, because there was not an optimal place to hang it. In fact, it was used so infrequently that it was almost passed on and not moved with us. At the last minute we decided to pack it, and now we are so glad we did. It hangs perfectly off of our two-story deck, and the kids have spent hours on it since my husband hung it only two weeks ago. This is homeschool recess at its finest!
