Design recommendations
Width : give it greater importance, for it determines the largest number of participants possible : 1.20 m (4') wide = one route for a pair climber/belayer
Configuration : plan inclines and overhangs :
1 m to 6 m (3' to 20')
S slab for beginners not necessary, rather plan a vertical surface
The upper part must have an automatic angle adjustment system
Average height : 9 m to 12 m (30' to 40')
Number of protruding holds : 5 / sq. m (5 / 10 sq. ft)
Support : whether the available support is a concrete wall, a breeze block wall, a steel frame, timber columns or other, there is always a possibility to adapt a corresponding climbing wall support. The option of self-standing climbing wall supports is also a solution
Crash area : indoors = fold-away crash mats / outdoors = gravel base 30 cm (1') deep
Clearance zone : 3 m (10') in front of the largest overhang
Safety : draw a red line at a 3 m (10') height to indicate the limit of climbing without rope belaying (traversing). In multi sport halls, plan a separation net
Other fittings / comfort items : lighting = minimal intensity of 300 lux even / heating and ventilation = temperature 16°C (60°F) to 18°C (65°F), the hot air must not accumulate on top of the wall

  Pyramide 's recommendation
 
Prefer a large diversity of surfaces (plywood panels, M.G.V., Cliff) and closely follow the wall allocation : 2/3 beginners/intermediate levels, 1/3 training
