Weatherproof climbing walls

Climbing in the sunshine on an outdoor wall on a warm, pleasant day can feel like being on a holiday, and for a moment you may even imagine being out on a rock face. But just like natural rock walls, outdoor climbing walls are also exposed to the elements and have to withstand weather, rain, wind, and humidity, extreme heat and cold 365 days a year. That is why additional structural aspects need to be considered when building outdoor walls. If they are to bring lasting fun to climbers, they must be made from mould-resistant wood and coated with UV-resistant, weatherproof synthetic resins, plus they require roofing and some form of protection against birds to make them durable.
