For most people, having a rock climbing wall in their home is something that could only exist in their imaginations.  However, for this family having a rock wall in their home is something that they take very seriously. After initially installing a climbing wall installed in their home, they decided it was time for an upgrade.  They had gotten used to all the angles, and it simply no longer posed a challenge.  Instead of simply rearranging, this awesome family decided to tear down the old wall and start from scratch. After some serious hard work, they were able to build the rock wall of their dreams. Take a look at this photos to see how this family’s home renovation resulted in one of the coolest walls you’ve ever seen.

Aside from wanting to re-do the wall, there were also some issues with the storage space.

To begin the process, the wall had to be completely stripped.
