Aquaclimb, An Over-The-Pool Climbing Wall

December 4, 2017

This is the Aquaclimb, a climbing wall designed to be installed over a pool so you don't need any safety equipment since you'll just land in the water if you fall (unless you installed it backwards). It comes in a variety of different styles and climbing configurations and I imagine it would be rather difficult to climb while barefooted and slippery. PROTIP: drain the pool for extra don't fall motivation. Unfortunately, I don't have an in-ground pool so I just installed mine over a kiddie pool in my driveway and now there's a bone sticking out of my arm, which I'm currently taking pics of to gross out my friends. It really looks just like how it does in the movies.

Keep going for several more shots of all the fun to be had while I Uber to the hospital and pretend I have insurance.

Thanks to Nathaniel, who's going to install one over a dumptruck filled with broken glass.

    Someone will die from this, eventually. But we're a species that loses members periodically because a pen cap gets lodged in their throats, so I guess I'm not making too much of a prediction. Nostradamus I ain't (if you think he's legit) and Nostradamus I am (if you're a reasonable human being who realizes that he's full of crap)

    Damn it, white people! Can't we live well enough alone? You should just be happy to have a pool in the first place. Why you gotta go and make it a rock climbing pool?

  • Is this so you can fall wrong and then drown?

  • MustacheHam

    Approved by doctors and morgue operators.

  • TheQiwiMan

    Looks fun!

  • I have a slight fear of heights and a big fear of drowning, so, no - it looks anything but to me.

  • The_Wretched

    Two great fears that work great together!

    don't be fooled, this was just the work of a creep who wants to blatantly stare at ass and crotch without reproach while at the swimming pool.

  • The_Wretched

    Well...yes. It's still a great work out to climb.

  • Big Dog on Krampus

    everybody wins!

  • Captain Matticus, LP Inc.

    Well thanks for ruining my plans. Now everybody knows.

    I always thought climbing walls would be waaaayyy more entertaining (for spectators) if one of the handholds was electrified at random...

  • PUNX

    make it a roulette were it changes every 15 to 30 seconds. it will be fun to watch and you wont have to wait long for your turn

  • Talon184

    I like it! I'd also consider adding some jellyfish to the pool...

  • Nicholas Conrad

    Look at that jerk, everyone has to get out of the pool while he does his little climb!

  • Mark

    I see entertainment value.

    The rest of the pool goers take bets and then push their float tubes out into the pool below the climber....
