What kind of wood should I use for an outdoor climbing wall?
18mm Plywood is recommended for most climbing walls – go for one with a smooth hardwood finish, rather than the cheapest available. For outdoor walls we recommend the use of Marine Ply, which is the highest grade.
What kind of plywood is used for climbing walls?
Use 3/4″ ACX plywood for the sheeting. This is a high-grade, exterior plywood. Lower grades of plywood have more voids in the inner layers, so it is quite possible to rip T-nuts right through the sheeting while climbing.

MDF is ideal for cutting, machining and drilling, since it does not chip easily. On the other hand, plywood is a much more stronger material, which can be used for doors, floors, staircases and outdoor furniture.
How thick should a climbing wall be?
You should note that 5/8 inch is the minimum thickness for a wall since you need that much clearance for a standard T-nut. The standard size for climbing walls however is 3/4 inch which should definately be used for roofs, overhanging walls and walls with studs 2 feet apart or greater.
