Design recommendations
Configuration : beginners' surface (vertical + slight overhang) with automatic belay systems to ensure a constant free access
Large overhang and small roof
Height : use the full height available
Width : give it greater importance, for it determines the largest number of participants possible : 1.20 m (4') to 1.50 m (5') wide = one climbing route
Number of protruding holds : 6 to 8 / sq. m (6 to 8 /10 sq. ft) to set several routes on the same wall section
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 : permanent crash mat

  Pyramide 's recommendation
 
It is important to gain height or route length : if possible plan to equip a roof space as from the beginning (or an arch). Select a very flexible climbing wall system (like the M.G.V.) for at least 2 or 3 routes : it will allow very quick route modifications within the next 2 years after the first installation.
