By the late 1980s, artificial walls started to appear in climbing stores around the US, this was a great tool to sell climbing gear, allowing the costumer to test the new item in the store. The wall was especially effective for shoe testing, which was also changing and evolving at the time, but that's a different story. To be continued.
