325 on the ropes

On October 7, 2001 the first section of our troop climbing wall was installed.  At the October 8th troop meeting, the Ventures attached their homemade handholds.  Soon we hope to add the other five sections of this 15'x15' wall.

This first section consists of a vertical sheet of plywood with numerous holes to insert
our homemade handholds.  Both the placement and size of the handholds will
determine the difficulty of the climbing route.
Venture crew advisor Ken Bonenberger shows "how it is done" plus gives a 
perspective to the current size of the project.

Here are a few close ups of the handholds our Ventures designed and created.
