Kilter Board - Home Wall Layout
Expansion Packs are Ready! We finally finished the 8x12, 10x10, and 10x12 Expansion Pack Options for the Kilter Board Homewall.
WHAT IS THE HOMEWALL LAYOUT?
Our goal was to design a Kilter Board that would fit inside most homes and work with most budgets. During development we shaped hundreds of holds to ensure the Kilter Board Homewall (HW) would keep a range of climbers entertained and challenged. The Kilter Board HW layout uses the same light-up technology and App functionality as the Original Kilter Board, but has a much higher density of holds per square foot, and departs from the Original Kilter Board in terms of hold style and movement.
The testing pool ranged from newer climbers to professional, and all of them came away with similar feedback: The grips are comfortable and unique, and the movement on the board tends to simulate outdoor climbing by encouraging precision and footwork.
The Kilter Board homewall layout has an active and engaged community who share videos, beta, and techniques with each other via instagram. We encourage all Kilter Board Homewall users to make an instagram account for their boards so they can join in! We often share homewall stories and features on our Kilter Board instagram @kilterboard so it'll be easy to find folks to climb with.
OVERLAPPING LAYOUT PACKS
The Kilter Board HW layout is broken down into two packs: The Mainline Pack and the Auxiliary Pack. Both packs have a variety of grip types and were designed to work independently of each other to allow users to build their Kilter Board HW in stages. The two packs overlay each other so either pack still creates a full board. The Full Ride is the combination of both packs and makes the densest wall. The Kilter App can be set up to display only the boulder problems that fit on the pack(s) you’ve purchased. (Keep an eye out on our IG @KilterGrips/@KilterBoard for more detail on the holds and layouts).
Mainline Pack for 7x10: 165 bolt-on holds that tend to be more generous, with a variety of crimps, edges, pinches, slopers, incut ears, and mini-jugs. The Mainline Pack fills every t-nut in a standard board grid (20cm or ~8" square grid like that on the Original Kilter Board as well as other boards like the Moonboard and Tension Board).
Auxiliary Pack for 7x10: 140 bolt-on holds that are mostly thinner crimps and pinches and slopey to flat edges with a few sets of mini-jugs and incut ears mixed in. The Auxiliary pack fills in the inbetween spots in a standard board grid (so where the footholds are on the Original Kilter Board + the blank spaces used as smearing lanes on the Original Kilter Board).
Full Ride (Mainline + Auxiliary) for 7x10: The complete 7x10 Kilter Board Home Wall layout: 305 bolt-on holds. The Full Ride fills in all the standard 20cm board grid t-nut holes and also fills in all the overlay grid holes for the densest board with the most options.
10x10, 8x12, and 10x12 Layout Expansion Packs OUT NOW!
Expansion Packs - 10x10: For those with lower ceilings, this is the way to go! Additional columns on each side of the 7x10 make the climbable surface wider and open up the edge rows. This super fun pack compliments the 7x10 Fullride by making it wider with 6 additional columns, 3 on each side. Also available as just Mainline (2 additional columns, one on each side) or Auxiliary (4 new columns, 2 on each side).
Expansion Packs - 8x12: If you have the height for it, this expansion pack adds bottom rows and a kickboard to make a full 12' upper + kickboard which is approximately the same size as other standard 8x12 boards (most boards have around 6" of space on each side of the outer columns and this will as well). This allows you to make more use of the lower holds on the 7x10 board as well as offering tons of new low start options. Option for Mainline Only or Aux Only expansion -- each has 3 upper board rows (Main or Aux) and 2 kickboard rows (same for both))
Expansion Packs - 10x12: Indeed you can get both expansion packs and set them all on the same frame, which will need to be 10' wide x 12' upper board + kickboard. This includes all the problems from the 7x10, 10x10, and 8x12 plus filled in bottom corners (the blank space between the 8x12 and 10x10) for even more problems. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for this option.
The best Kilter Board experience includes the light kit to light up the unique 2-color holds. If you are purchasing in pieces and aren't ready to get the light kit yet you can buy just the holds and still use the app by just remembering which holds are on each boulder. We highly recommend planning to include the light kit sooner or later in your build as it provides the most enjoyable experience.
The Kilter App lets you share problems with other users around the world. You can log ascents, see beta videos, add your own beta videos, tag problems with different notes, set problems (now with draft mode and quick delete), set animated routes, and more! New features are in the works as well to continue to enhance your Kilter Board experience.
If you use multiple boards of different sizes your Kilter App can save them separately so you can use one app for all the Kilter Boards you climb on. The app is free for Apple and Android.

FRAMES // MATS // BUNDLES
We have a variety of bundle options, all of which feature a discount when you purchase a frame + padding + lights & holds kits. Write Frame Quote, Mat Quote, or both in the notes with your hold kit purchase and we'll reach out with options, or email Kiel at email@example.com.
BOLTS // SCREWS // T-NUTS
To make the holds lighter and cheaper we used Flathead/Martini bolts for many of these board holds. You can contact us for a list if you have your own source or you can select "Yes Bolts" at checkout and we'll include appropriate Bolts and Set Screws. If you need T-Nuts please choose the Kilter Board Home Wall T-Nut Pack for your wall size (Links: 7x10, 8x12, or 10x10) and we can include those in your shipment as well or send them early if you want to do the build before the rest of your wall shows up. If you only want t-nuts for Mainline, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll set you up.
SHIPPING // DOMESTIC // INTERNATIONAL
Shipping for contiguous USA calculated at checkout.
For International, please contact your local distributor and/or select the free "International Quote" option on the product dropdown on this page and go through the check out process (it's free) and we'll follow up.
These are on a fairly normal production schedule but we are working with our manufacturer to speed them up as much as possible. We can get you a production quote within a week of purchase or in advance of purchase if needed. The sooner you get your order in, the sooner your board is in the queue and the sooner it will come. If you want a bundle with a frame and/or mat, you can still order your holds kit now to get in the queue and we will apply the discount retroactively. Thanks!
