I wanted to build a simple 4 post outdoor rig, with pullup bars, rope climb. ladder. Does anyone have any plans/specs from something similar?

It's great to hear that you're building a ninja outdoor rig. Just to add to the questions my colleague has asked. Are you building this for a child, an adult or both? What is the approximate size of the area that you'll be putting this in? Any other details you can add to the size of the ninja set would be much appreciated.
I am looking at a simple 4 post structure, with a rope attached to climb at 1 side, pullup bars, monkey bars across centre & a ladder at rear. It is for adults, not kids. basically, I am unsure of the pole height. I was looking at your 100x100 3m treated posts, placing these 500 deep, with instant cement be sufficient to hold the structure? Using your galvanised steel tubing for pullup & monkey bars?
Your proposal of using 100 x 100mm Post H4 Treated Pine Wet CCA is ideal. However, this is on the condition that base ends are properly held in by cement and that the top part of the posts are connected together using 90 x 45mm L/M Outdoor Framing MGP10 H3 Treated Pine in combination with cup head bolt and nut assembly. This will give stability to the posts and prevent them from leaning in different directions. If you add more timber for the different ninja functions it will make the assembly even more stable.
Using Galvanised Metal Tubes would be perfect as monkey bars and they would be strong enough to carry an adult. The thickest rope at the store is 16mm, you could double up the rope assembly to give you a better grip. As for the rope climb, the closest item I could find at the store is the Swing Slide Climb 1800 x 800mm Cargo Net. It is measured at 1.8m but you'll need to join at least two of these together if you want it a longer length.
