“This is the systems wall I built at the house for training (both rock and ice) You can see there are a lot of home made tree branch holds (alders) on the upper 1/3 of the wall. Cut them couple feet long then run the branch length wise through a table saw to give you a flat surface that can mount against the wall. Screw them on for hooks, side pulls .... for your ice tools. It works well for training and will not piss all the climbers at your local sport crag off. You do not want to bring sharp objects to the rock climbing area although it is just fine to try and rock climb a dry tool route in the summer if one wishes.
