Holds, T-nuts and Bolts 21-Jan-2020 At 10:18:36 AM gordoste
I've got some cheap holds that are crap, some Moon holds which are super expensive and great and some Uncarved Block ones which are fairly dear but a joy to hold.

My advice would be don't cheap out - you won't enjoy using the wall if the holds are uncomfortable. Yes the holds are going to be a few hundred bucks but you will use them for a very long time and if not, you can sell them. You could check online marketplaces for bulk lots but look out because quality is extremely variable.

Regarding T-nuts - as someone else said, the local fastener shop is going to be the cheapest if you know a builder or someone who has a wholesale account. Otherwise Climbing anchors is probably the best bet. Most hold manufacturers do also sell t-nuts. Don't skimp on them either!

Make sure you look around for your plywood. You can often find stuff like that cheaper at a local hardware store.

If you really want to save money, you should investigate making your own wooden holds. Things like staircase banisters can be chopped up, and even shaping your own is not that difficult if you have access to a few basic tools. Search around and you'll find a few great tutorials. This also has the advantage that they are really nice for your fingers.
