This is a model created to assist in figuring out how the lead area at the Phoenix Rock Gym was to be built. Derek Underhill and Chris Foncannon built this model out of popsicle sticks and a thick plaster paper. They even put texture on the walls for it to be more realistic. The model is close to what was built, but a few final changes went into the design at the last minute. Dief asked the course setters what they would like to see for the design. I added the rounded barrel design at the start of the overall wall in the back corner that leads into the roof. This model was made in 2003 where the lead area steel was built and welded by Dief, and the wood walls were built by Derek and Chris.
I believe it was Derek that made the scale size characters to put into the Lead Area model for fun. Chris shown here wearing staff yellow PRG t-shirt, with Elvis outfit, and with a dress.
Derek's character was a climber that was attached to the left wall of the lead area.
