An artificial climbing wall is a wall with multiple grips (holds), a mixture of fixed and movable, for hands and feet. Climbing wall is built for indoors and outdoors as well. Climbing walls are made using modern materials including fiber with holes drilled into the panels. These panels are generally 4 feet by 4 feet in size though it changes from case to case. The holes in the panel are used for fixing holds that are used as a grip by climbers and for fasteners that hold carabineers that are used for safety purpose.


The wall generally has a top belay, which is a rope passing from the top of the wall for safety of the climber along with a fastener on every panel for lead climbing. The holes in panel have a specially created t-nut to allow modular climbing holds to be screwed onto the wall. The wall is mostly rested on a strong metallic frame that keeps the panels in place and provides a sturdy support to the artificial climbing wall.


The climbing face of the wall is covered with textured products for easy grip of the climber. In addition to the movable holds, climbing walls often contain fixed surface structures in shapes of incuts and bulges.
