This is the box my holds came in and gives a run down of what's included for differing mega packs.

Thought you may enjoy it.

Metolius 60 pack!

Great video showing all holds before they are mounted on the home bouldering/training wall.

Enjoy and take it from us, this is worth the slightly extra cost than other holds on the market. They come with customer service, warranties, and a name you can trust!!!

I've used other companies in the past and they really let me down when it came to crappy holds and even worse customer service.

Get the best-buy from Metolius/backcountry.com!!!

(The video isn't self produced. I found it on YouTube. At the end it recommends purchasing from Amazon and this I DO NOT RECOMMEND because it doesn't come with backcountry.com's lower rates and customer service. Do yourself a favor and order from backcountry.)

Perfect for smaller home walls....

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These mega packs come with a variety of holds in a variety of colors.

One thing I was particularly happy about was the fact Metolius includes holds that come in similar colors and styles so one can set problems color coded, thus no tape is necessary.

I also purchased the Macro holds from Metolius in green cobblestone and the mini roof jug sets in blue; it was perfect for my training cycle at home.

I recommend purchasing a couple additional sets of macro holds and mini jugs for variety, but otherwise this is a great place to start.

Great product and Metolius and backcountry stand by their products-do yourself a favor and pay a little extra for these holds that come equipped with hardware, holds you'll find in nearly EVERY gym across the country, and customer service you can't beat from both the manufacturer and backcountry alike.

See pics below of my home climbing wall and these holds+ the additional holds I ordered with the mega pack set. EPIC!

Perfect for smaller home walls....

If I upgrade from a 30 pack to a 40 pack...

If I upgrade from a 30 pack to a 40 pack will I get more jugs? I am doing a roof and need as many jugs as possible ? It doesn't say how many jugs come in a pack.

Responded on

Jacki,

As you go up in size from 30 to 40 to 50 you will get a proportional increase in holds. So you will certainly get 1 and maybe even 2 additional jugs, but no more than that. If you are building up an overhang section of your wall I would recommend complementing the Metolius Mega Pack with some Metolius Roof Jug Hold Sets.

How would the holds and hardware do outside?...

Posted on

How would the holds and hardware do outside? I'm considering a year round outside wall in the Midwest .

Responded on

they will do fine sort of. the midwest can be a really chilly place. if you're trying to change your wall in the dead of winter, you may have trouble with tighter bolts. very cold holds would stand a better chance of breaking, but it shouldn't be commonplace. if you don't change your holds for years you may have rust issues. otherwise the holds and bolts will be fine outside.

the bigger concern is making sure you wall is built in a way that wont be affecting by thaw/freeze cycles

I see that some of these holds require that you bolt them in to multiple Tnuts. If so, what is the standard spacing of one Tnut to the next in order that it will fit all of these holds? height, length?

Best Answer Responded on

The holds in this pack either take one Tnut, or multiple screws.

Can a climbing wall be installed on 2 x 8...

Posted on

Can a climbing wall be installed on 2 x 8 plywood and then strapped to a tree? We live in the forest and I'd like to build the wall for my grandsons.

Responded on

I don't see why not, as long as you anchor it very securely.

Best Answer Responded on

don't forget that there needs to be space between the plywood and anything behind it, otherwise you wont be able to screw in bolts. best bet is to use 2x4s or 6s and build a frame for the plywood to give you space and rigidity. then attach that to your tree.

I want to buy this set to build a children's wall. ages up to 13. can this set be any good for me?

Responded on

This set is a decent option, but I would aim for primarily using jugs (large, deeply incut holds) http://rockymountainclimbinggear.com/

Responded on

the 60 set has a lot of jugs, but quite a few holds that would probably be hard for young children. if you're building a low angle wall, this should be fine. vert or steeper, you'd probably want to supplement with more jugs.

Excited

Installing right now, the 60 piece set on an 8' x 10' wall. Seem to have plenty of hold. It came with a "How to build a climbing wall" book which has provided some helpful tips. One thing to note, they recommend 100 - 200 t-nut holes per 4x8 sheet of plywood for flexibly in route setting. The big 60 pack only comes with about 45 t-nuts though, plenty for the holds provided, but not nearly enough to fill the # of holes you should have. I am ordering and would recommend purchasing additional t-nuts when putting your wall together. Perfect selection for starting out a climbing wall though!

Planning on building a small bouldering...

Posted on

Planning on building a small bouldering wall in my basement this summer. Trying to decide how big i want the wall and which pack of holds i should buy. What is a good number for holds per square foot? I was thinking about 1 hold per sq ft. So thats would be a 30 pack per sheet of ply wood. Is this accurate? What do you guys think?

Best Answer Responded on

One hold per square foot should be more than awesome, if it feels sparse you can always fill in with some foot jibs. I would just go to you local gym and see what they do; unless you're making a systems wall, in which case you're going to want a specialized hold pack.

how much is this?

how much is this?

Responded on

These are out of stock, but they range anywhere from $99-219 depending how many holds you get. 30-60 holds.

box of rocks

I gave a box of rocks for a Christmas gift to my son who loves to climb. He has a wall at college, and he is currently intalling one on the stairway to the upper floor to entertain himself while he is home on break. The ones leftover will be installed outside on a wall for the nicer weather climbing when we arent out on a rock wall. Prob will be ordering a few more. Love the selection of rocks enclosed, the install is easy, directions are clear. All I need is more room to install the rocks.

What type of wall is needed under climbing holds? 1/2 inch plywood or what??

Responded on

1/2 inch plywood would work really well

Responded on

But they recommend 3/4". I started with 1/2", but was getting some flex so changed to 3/4".

when we started building our garage bouldering wall we had no idea how much fun it would be. the 60-hold set was great, it took the guess work out of the final touches, with enough holds to be super fun.
