    Wow………if you lose grip of the wall on the side that curves over, you are an inclined plane wrapped around a cylinder.

    Then, that might just be me, I am not that good at climbing.

    And it’s only 10euros for a day pass! Cheap, at least by American urban-area indoor gym standards.

    In Switzerland we have a 160 meter climbing wall… this is just a tiny wall compare to it… just tell the truth!

  31. acecamonte

    Its 37m tall right? So do you climb it single pitch with an 80m rope (if so make sure to a knot at the other end) or are there belay stations mid way?

  32. Jim Walldog

    In Yosemite there is a 3000 foot vertical climbing wall. And it’s actually made of rock. And it’s free.

  33. Randy Tognoni

    That is very impressive but not the worlds tallest. This is.


    They are clear when they say “free standing climbing wall”… made by man. On Yosemite it is a natural mountain. In Reno is almost 50 m. (not 160, that is feet) but attached to a building. So, they are right in saying “The tallest free standing climbing wall in the world”…


    I just learned that actually the tallest free standing climbing wall (almost 43 m), since Dec. 2011, is called “Historic Banning Mills”, located in Whitesburg, GA.
