An exercise apparatus invented, installed, and demonstrated in images below by Andrew Maxwell (and a rather agile 8-year-old kid)
Below is a small sample of the poses I have developed. The possibilities for stretching and strength-building are practically infinite.

The original monkey gym installed in the summer of 1996 at Art City in Ventura, CA, consisted of hundreds of feet of used polyester nautical rope (for tying large freighter ships to docks) tied up randomly between a group of three eucalyptus trees. It was like a spider web. It burned, along with 1/3 of Art City, in December 1998.
