The Nicros H.I.T. system

Part 5 of the Garage Wall Project Build

Hold It!

So, the wall is ready, but we need something to hold on to!

The main purpose of the wall is for training. For the left side of the wall, I purchased the H.I.T. system from Nicros which is mean to be used at the 50° angle. For the right side of the wall, I’ve fabricated a set of campus rungs to be used at the 15° setting. The right side also has room for some additional training holds, which I have set with some slopers at the moment. I purchased a variety of crimps, slopers, jugs, pinches and foot-chips from Atomik Climbing and Three Ball Climbing to allow the setting of additional problems around the training holds, to allow for a little fun as well.

15° angles all cut. The rungs can be mounted two ways. With the angled side up, the surface will remain parallel to the ground. The other way, the rung will slope down to the ground
