Please have a look at the How to Build a Climbing Wall pages. Lots of helpful information and tips.
Any holds from the For The Kids category will be fine.
All the holds that I make are made of 100% polyurethane. I do not add fillers to my holds. Metolius holds are made of polyurethane and their hangboards are made of fiberglass resin. Uncarved Block purchases Metolius products from the Australian distributor.
Uncarved Block is located in Armidale NSW.

Yes. To New Zealand ONLY. Check delivery time estimate here.
No. All orders and payments must be completed through the webpage.
To get you started I suggest 5 holds per square metre of climbing surface; simply calculate the area of your wall and times that by 5 to get how many holds you need.
Yes, please see this page for detailed information about color selection. Colour matching existing holds is not available.

The material I use is very hard and very durable but can be broken. Yes, once the broken hold is returned to me. See the returns page.
Yes. Polyurethane climbing holds, do not need to be sanded at all. If the bottom is uneven, it will not break when tightened. This is a myth as far as polyurethane climbing holds go. The only reason I sand my holds at all is so I do not have to answer all the emails about the un-sanded holds. Unsanded holds have a nice sharp minuscus that creates amazing friction against your wall and pretty much eliminates any chance of spinning holds.
Traditional hexagonal nuts are not required to attach a climbing hold to a typical plywood wall. T-nuts are used instead. See this short but instructive video.
Unless otherwise stated in the product description, t-nuts are NOT included with holds / sets. Metolius Mega 40 & 50 Packs are the only sets that have tnuts included.
I recommend a minimum of 70-100 t-nuts per full sheet of plywood. The more tnuts you add to your wall the more variety of locations you have to move the holds around. It is usually hard to add tnuts to a climbing wall after it is built, as it involves getting behind the wall to hammer in the new tnuts.
If your wall is indoors, I recommend regular steel bolts, and for outdoors I recommend stainless steel bolts.
The most common method for use on a plywood climbing wall is to drill holes in the plywood everywhere you want to attach a hold, hammer in a t-nut from the back of the plywood and attach the hold with a bolt. See this short but instructive video. You can also use Screw-On climbing holds that do not require a t-nut.
To attach bolt-on climbing holds to a concrete wall Hilti drop-in anchors can be used. You will need to drill holes in the concrete everywhere you would like a hold then insert and set the anchors. Using this method you can use the bolts that you can purchase with your holds. You can also use Screw-On climbing holds and attach them with masonry screws.
You can use masonry screws.
Yes, however, the colours are not UV stable and will fade over time with exposure to UV.
I do not have plans, but I do offer lots of useful information on building your own wall here.
Anything other than climbing holds in pictures of sets or holds are for size reference only and will not be included with your order.
I can make custom holds to suit any application or specification. See this page for more information.
