the whole point of this blog is to help others with all the questions they have about setting up a similar home climbing gym, and ramble about a variety of climbing related subjects.
There is a variety of subjects... most involving rock climbing, written about on this blog. MAKING VOLUMES OR CLIMBING HOLDS, is probably one of the more popular subjects. just check the labels links or search bar to find your fancy.
of course if you want to go back and start from the beggining, please do! to that end, if there are any question let me know ... i encourage you to add comments for others to read or if you want to get me directly you can email me at treadwallproject@hotmail.com
IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME, READ THE MUST READ LIST.... oh!, ...and you have to fight!

This is a comment that was recently posted:
That is probably one of the most pathetic things i have ever read, people like you are the reason that people give up on projects, Yeah its unfeasible but not impossible, i recon (and by the way i am 15) i could build one for under £100 in my shed (yes i own a shed) out of Scrap and a cheep welder with a wheelchair motor, so if i can do it i am sure you with your 'industry contacts' can do it to.

this was a comment to my article entitled pro·pri·e·tar·y ed·u·ca·tion

Joe, im sorry you found it to be sooo pathetic. unfortunately i find you to be pathetic. in the entire article, i pretty much said if you want to try you should!! theres nothing wrong with someone saying how hard it might be. if you do choose to do it, RIGHT THE FUCK ON! you little turd. oh please blog it, let us know how it goes. then give the knowledge away for free on the net. seriously if you have what it takes to make a DIY treadwall i think it should be shared!! but what you dont realize is IM NOT HERE TO GIVE SHIT AWAY THATS NOT MINE OR PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE, you little douche. the whole point of this article was to tell people from eastern europe and asia to stop trying to get me to help them reverse engineer another persons lifes work!  Brewer's ledge is not a major corporation it a family run business of ACTUAL climbers!  do you really think that im going to help out asia companies, who dont give a shit about climbing, to try and make a cheaper rip off.  they are going to do it anyway but it doesnt mean i need to help.  also i dont need to be sued by my friends for being a dick!
seriously anyone and everyone out theres that wants to make youre own wall please try and succeed!  please let me know anything you learn or gain in the process and that you are willing to give away to the world for free.... cause i will post the shit out of anything you want to donate to the climbing community!  even if it just some goofball training routine that your into lets put some bad ideas out there!

finaly JOE!, i hope we one day climb and have a good time.  but at 15 your all kinds of a punk ass!  i know im a punk ass, we can smell our own.  obviously you read some of the article hopefully you read it all.  used your brain you little shit, read between the lines.  enjoy the humor.  plus, some people should be encourage to give up.  im thinking of people who strapped wings to there backs and jumped off barns!

immorterial on supertopo

okay ... okay, i know it has been a very long time since i had anything new posted and you all must be thinking to yourselves... "why oh why? do i keep checking out this guys lame ass blog?" i dont blaim you. but i do have some very lame excuses i can provide!

first off im busy! i have a life! true my girlfriend left me, yes i have very few friends, no i dont have kids. but i have a dog.... i he has to be my friend because i bought him... and thats a good agruement for slavery!

next my climbing gym shut down, went out of business, got down-sized by the man.... since then i have been working with a "team" to open a new gym here on the kitsap penn. unfortunately i have absolutely no details on our progress....

also i've been working on starting my own business. i finally found a partner who will do all the business stuff while i get the fun creative part. so while thats developing i hope to one day (in the next six months, this stuff takes time) soon to announce the opening of TREATMENT Holds dot Com.

so, finally what i really want to tell you is please check out this trip report on supertopo.com .... it was written by Blair who i climbed half dome with. he did an excellent job writing it and theres a serries of videos that he also made, if nothing else WATCH THOSE!!


thanks for continuing to check in. ill post some better stuff soon.... lately im training for el Cap so i have some thoughts to share about big wallies
