So you want to make your own climbing holds? Maybe it’s because you have a home climbing wall, or maybe because you want to have some holds to train on above your door frame, or maybe it’s because you are an entrepreneur, or heck, maybe it’s because you just really like climbing and love the idea of sculpting holds. For me, it was all of the above, so I went about seeing how I could output the best quality holds at home in Do It Yourself style, with materials mostly available and usable at home.
The list of some of the DIY Climbing Hold Materials you might need/want to purchase are listed at the bottom of this post.
Here is the summary video for those who are just curious about the climbing hold making process – here you can see the start to end process without committing to the full time-sink:
As mentioned in that video, here are the full videos in the series that get more into the details of making polyurethane climbing holds:
This page will probably be updated as I field questions or add any details about the process at a later date – believe it or not, I had to cut a lot of little details out to keep these videos remotely digestible. I also will possibly make more videos in the future that will live here too. That is it for the technical side of making holds, but as mentioned in the last video… THERE’S MORE!!! What good is it to show you how to make holds, if I don’t do some QA and show you how they climb?
So I made this wacky home climbing wall/DIY hold climbing video, hopefully you enjoy the ridiculousness that it is:
