Now let's check out the features of the Sun Climber I wooden swing set.
The Sun Climber I is a mid-sized swing set with a 5 foot deck height - so it can accommodate small children AND its big enough to accommodate your children as they grow older. The biggest draw of the Sun Climber I is its angled base (or A-Frame style base) - so it gives your children a larger rock wall and enough room to add a tire swing underneath!
The deck platform is 4' x 6', so it has plenty of space to fit multiple children. The deck comes with a steering wheel, telescope, tic-tac-toe board and safety handles.
Coming off the front of the main deck you can see the full sized rock wall with climbing rope. As mentioned, the angled based sets have extra wide rock walls which children love.
Over on the side of the deck we have the double walled, 5 foot alpine wave slide. If you were to upgrade to the Sun Climber II, this would also be the location of the monkey bars. However, the Sun Climber I here does not include monkey bars.
Underneath the deck is extra space, and it comes with a tire swing, which is always a favorite with the kids.
Off to the side of the back of the deck you have a nice little ropeladder to play on.
Coming off the back of the deck are a set of steps and a safety ladder - both leading to the main deck.
You can also see a massive 4" x 6" wooden swing beam with iron swing hangers that are bolted completely through the 6 inch swing beams with locking carriage bolts. These make Gorilla swing beams extremely sturdy and virtually unbreakable.
The sets come standard with 2 belt swings and a trapeze bar. The Sun Climber I comes in Cedar, it has a 5 foot main deck and an angled base . For more on those features, please read our comprehensive blog post here:
The Top 4 Things You Absolutely Must Know Before Buying a Swing Set
Overall, the Sun Climber I has a larger rockwall and a tire swing underneath the deck which make the kiddies go bananas! The Sun Climber's Sunbrella canopy will stay brighter and wear much less than a set with a traditional canopy. For more information, please visit or contact us at:
