  3. Print a couple copies and arrange the shapes until you get the design you'd like. Each square on the grid represents 1 foot x 1 foot so you just need to draw an outline around the area you want to fill with panels--for example, if the space is 8 ft high, count up 8 squares, and 10 ft wide, count across 10 squares.
  4. Now choose your handholds. Plan to place about:
    -2 holds per Solo Panel (the narrow panel)
    -5 holds per Explorer Panel (the pizza shaped one)
    -7 holds per square panel (Slabs, Artist Series)
    Our catalog of climbing holds include sets that will work for kids and beginners to advanced clambers who need training-worthy chips and crimps.
