When you climb a wall in a park or museum, there’s a good chance you’ve come across some sort of rock climbing gear.
For example, I saw some weirdly-shaped metal plates on a bench at the top of a large wall in the park I visited in Maine last summer.
When I asked the guy who made the equipment if he’d made it, he said no.
It was a bit weird, but I’m glad he didn’t make a bad mistake.
The plates were designed to support a wall that was 10 to 12 feet tall.
So the question remains: How do you mount a wall using metal plates?
A quick Google search of “how to climb dome on metal plates” turns up dozens of videos and articles.
In one of them, an amateur video, an American climbing instructor (who goes by the name “Drake”) shows how he installs the equipment.
I’m not sure what type of gear he uses, but the guy makes it look easy, and I can see why.
After the equipment is installed, it takes a bit of trial-and-error to figure out how to get the metal plates in place, and there’s still plenty of room for error.
One thing I did notice, however, was that he took care to make sure the plates were properly spaced, so that they would fit properly under the wall.
You can see in the video that I have to tilt my head up a bit when the equipment rests, but that’s normal.
Another issue is that the metal plate screws that attach the wall to the wall support can be very difficult to get off.
This is particularly annoying because they can also get stuck in places where you don’t want them to be, like under a chair or on a rock.
Drake has some good tips on how to mount the plates in different places on the wall, but it’s hard to find them all.
Here’s how you mount the metal rods in a climbing wall.
(Drake’s YouTube channel is great for these videos.)
The most important thing is to get your feet under the plates and make sure you’re not too far away from them.
That way, if you push them too far into the wall and they slip out, you can get them back on without breaking anything.
If you don, you could probably just replace them with a new piece of metal, but if they break or you need to replace the screws, you’ll probably have to pay extra.
