    Excalibur: The World's Tallest Climbing Wall !!

    Towering over 121 feet (37 meters) in the air, the Excalibur at the Klimcentrum Bjoeks (Bjoeks Climb Center) in the town of Groningen, The Netherlands, is considered to be the tallest climbing wall in the world. What makes climbing the Excalibur a challenge, aside from the monumental height, is a sleek curve 36 feet (11 meters) out from the base that c
    reates an artificial overhang as one encounters when climbing a real peak. Because of the curve it is possible to climb the tower in many different ways, each posing a different challenge.

    At Bjoeks Climb Center, there is an array of indoor climbing walls, including one designed for first-timers and another that’s at a 45 degree angle. There’s also a large indoor-outdoor bordering area with 117 boulders to scamper over.

    Maybe tallest artificial wall. Pfft, I've climbed actual big walls, out in nature, and 37 meters is nothing.

    I'm still waiting for some engineering genius to incorporate a climbing section on highrise buildings.

    That would be awesome.
