I work for a middle school in Westminster, CO and run the local climbing club (currently at a rec. center). We are trying to get this rock wall certified (in my school) to be able to be used. I have looked all over the wall and can’t figure out what company built it (it was recommended we contact the maker to see if they can inspect if they still exist). We believe it was built about fifteen years ago. Any advice?

Anthony, the company I work for does climbing wall inspections, if you're looking for a third party to do it. Just shoot me your info and I'll get you in touch.

just a climber's observation from the minimal amount of photos but I'd like to see that top rope anchor beefed up some... though that might be an auto belay just out of frame. it's hard to tell from the photo. If it is an auto belay that's probably the most important thing to get checked.

I'm guessing that's an autobelay. (you can see the shadow of it on the wall.)

I manage the outdoor studies at CMC in Glenwood and we've used Enterprises in the past to do our wall inspections.
