A climbing wall is an artificially constructed wall with grips for hands and feet. The material most often used is a thick multiplex board with holes drilled into it. Recently, manufactured steel and aluminum have also been used. The wall has places to attach belay ropes, but may also be used to practice lead climbing or bouldering.
Each hole contains a specially formed t-nut to allow modular climbing holds to be screwed onto the wall. With manufactured steel or aluminum walls, an engineered industrial fastener is used to secure climbing holds. The face of the multiplex board climbing surface is covered with textured polyurethane, then loaded with sand. In addition to the textured surface and hand holds, the wall contains surface structures with incuts and protrusions, (bulges). This way the area on the mobile rockwall can take the form of an overhang, underhang or crack.
Some grips are formed to mimic the conditions of outdoor rock, including some that are oversized and can have other grips bolted onto them. Bolt-on holds are fixed to the wall with iron bolts inserted through the hold. These have specific bolt points, and are fixed into pre-allocated screw-threaded holes in the wall. Screw-on holds are, by contrast, usually much smaller. These holds are connected to the wall by screws which may be fastened anywhere on the wall’s surface.
