Tallest artificial climbing wall
49.85 metre(s)
United States (Reno)

The tallest artificial climbing wall offers 49.85 m (163 ft 6.5 in) of climbing experience along a 51.67-m-tall (169-ft 6.48-in) wall and is part of the BaseCamp Climbing Gym. The climbing wall is attached to the side of the 16-storey Whitney Peak Hotel in Reno, Nevada, USA, and opened on 1 October 2011. Climbers start at second-floor level and, when they reach the top, are a vertigo-inducing 57.3 m (188 ft) above Reno – the equivalent of four double-decker buses laid end-to-end.

The wall offers beginner- to expert-level routes, an IFSC-certified 15-m speed wall and multi-pitch climbing with two ledge-separated pitches for each 50-m route.
