How to choose the right rock climbing wall for your event

There are many factors to consider when selecting a rock climbing wall. The size of your event, will determine the throughput needed on the rock wall. Throughput is the amount of participants per hour that can use a ride. When it comes to rock walls, the factors that contribute to the throughput are

  1. Number of climbing lanes
  2. Difficulty of the climbing lanes
  3. The height of the climbing lanes
  4. The age of the participants

The most important of these is the number of climbing lanes. The more climbing lanes on the rock wall the more throughput. Most rock walls have either 3 or 4 climbing lanes. However, the best rock walls have 5 climbing lanes. These may cost a little more, but guarantee the highest throughput at an event. The goal at any event, is to keep the lines moving and people happy having fun.

What should I look for when renting a rock climbing wall?

When ordering a rock wall from a company, you want to make sure there is a variety of difficulties on the climbing lanes. If all the lanes are easy or all the lanes are hard, there will be unhappy participants. To keep everyone happy, you want to have a rock wall with easy, medium, and hard lanes. This allows beginners to progress throughout the event and move up a level while giving experienced climbers a challenge.

Height of the rockwall is also important. If the rockwall is too tall, it will lengthen the amount of time the participants spend climbing wall. This makes lines more slower. If the wall is too short, it is not challenging for most adults. The most desirable heights are between 25 feet and 28 feet.

Age of the participants effect the throughput also. The younger the child the more challenging it is for them to reach the next rock hold. This can cause kids to move very slowly on the wall. Some kids may get half way up and decide they do not want to go any further, but are also concerned about coming back down. So, it is always difficult to determine what your throughput at an event will be.
