Multi-Layer Modular Climbing Walls

Ease of installation with unmatched quality

Our dual-layer, 1” thick walls are mostly manufactured off-site for quicker and easier installation. After the initial walls are assembled, a final layer of finish sheeting is applied on-site, creating the rigidity and ultra-clean, seamless look we’re known for. Once assembled, all the same high-end stains, textures, and finishes used with our ARC climbing wall systems can be added for a premium look and feel.

Long Beach Rising climbing gym: MLM panels and walls

Geometric and Seamless

MLM panels consist of flat surfaces seamlessly joined to create multidimensional, geometric climbing walls. Each surface is precision-cut using a CNC machine at Vertical Solutions’ corporate headquarters in Salt Lake City.

Panels are quickly assembled onsite, and, to create the ultra-clean look Vertical Solutions is known for, a final layer of finish sheeting is installed by our finish carpenters. This dual layer creates a rigid and truly seamless final product.

Vertical Solutions bouldering walls typically receive a hand shaped top-rail. Route walls are protected with hardwood at rope wear points.

Just like with our premier ARC climbing wall systems, there are endless ways to customize your climbing gym’s MLM walls, including color finishes, hardwoods, and textures.

As with all Vertical Solutions projects, each design is unique, distinguishable, and perfectly tailored to suit your climbing gym’s personality.
