The Ultimate DIY

For anyone who wants to build a wall on the fly, may we suggest checking out the brilliant setup over at Design for Mankind? Faced with an energetic three-year-old, Erin’s handy hubby whipped up a rock climbing wall without the actual “rocks,” and it was a smash hit. If you want to DIY your own version, Design for Mankind has the how-to.

Editor’s note: While we adore these walls, we want to stress that all climbing should be done under a supervision of an adult. Happy climbing!
