      You obviously don't live in an area where rock climbing is popular.. A guy up the road from me permanently sealed his garage door shut with plywood so he could fit more climbing holds in his "garage". No cars, no tools, just climbing. ha.

      Yeah, I had to keep the garage space. My garage is too small as is. I'd love to do a dedicated space for climbing, but it's not happening with this house.

      Do you have a bunch of crash pads or just rather large testicles?

      Wait, you guys are saying this is for climbing?
      I thought this was just fo' decoration, a la Bubb Rubb... How do you climb on the ceiling? Also, the walls don't look too high...

      Haha, I haven't gotten around to buying some pads yet, but I definitely need to. No good local sources, unfortunately. I need two like Cal-King-mattress sized pads, and the shipping is more than the actual pads!
      The top of the wall is only 15-16 feet up or so, so it's not too bad. Will probably invest in some 5" thick crash pads, that I can just prop up at the front of the garage when the car is parked.

      I love me some Baja! my brother had a Baja Sun Bug when I was little. he pulled up outside my parents house one day with a type I on a flat bed with a crunched front end. out comes the sawzall! I've never looked at a sawzall the same since. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      my friends garage. needless to say, it puts all others to shame. a LIFT, room for at least 8 cars, every tool you could ever need, snap on EVERYTHING, tig welder, huge air compressor, sandblaster, metal brakes, heated floors, lathe, parts washer, powdercoater, tons of random accessories, parts etc etc etc!
      crazy big garage, everything you'd almost ever need too.

      Went looking for a new house this past weekend. Found one new 3-4 Car one with ~20 ft ceilings. Needless to say, the mind reeled and it was instantly my favorite!

      It looks average until you spot the door up there.

      Yes, upside down. It is rock climbing anyways.

      It's really not that hard. It just takes a lot of forearm strength and climbing shoes.

      Quoting again, because this is a badass idea. Very nice.
      Our garage is nothing special, but it does hold all 4 of our cars, barely (Saab, NB, Disco, and E250 cargo van). Old, crappy photo:

      I like things with two wheels and things with four wheels.

      Its used for bouldering; climbing without ropes usually never above 15 feet.
      I saw the first two pics and knew exactly where you were headed with it. Nice work. Get the chalk bucket out and get to crushing. It looks like you have a pretty good area to do some home training with. I'd definitely invest in some crash pads. Even if its just the portable ones made by mad rock or a company like that.
      I <3 driving.

      All these garages are too clean and organized. Mine is full of grease, dirt, and oil stains. My tools are all there, just completely disorganized. I would do something about it, but as soon as I get everything put away, I need to drag it again in order to use it.
