Need help in designing my basement bouldering wall.

I just bought my gyms entire wall, plywood sheets with all the holds plus 180 more holds in boxes with 3 new helmets, 4 used ropes, and 8 pairs of shoes for $550. The gym is good no out of business and selling stuff. Good deal?

In my basement I have a space with one wall 16'6" wide and the cornering wall is 13' wide. Both walls 9' tall.
Walls framed and the wider walls all has an air vent 4' deep at its deepest on the top. Here is a picture I will of course be moving the Cabinents benches and other stufff.

I am going to start tearing down the gym wall tomorrow and once I bring it all home am going to build the frame for the bouldering wall. I would really appreciate input or designs. I live in Yakima WA so climbing friends are welcome. With extra wall pieces not used downstairs I will build a higher climbing all in the garage.

This may have already crossed your mind, but don't settle for a purely vertical wall. You'll get a lot more training mileage out of overhanging walls. I think 30 degrees to 50 degrees overhung is considered average and 60 degrees overhung for hard training.

Consider making a systems wall as well if you have enough matching holds.
