If you like climbing artificial walls, you now have your new Everest. The Excalibur tower at the Bjoeks Climb Center (Klimcentrum Bjoeks) in the town of Groningen, The Netherlands, is considered to be the tallest climbing wall in the world. It towers over 121 feet in the air (37 meters) and has an overhang of 36 feet (11 meters) providing climbing surfaces for both beginners and pro’s.
Citizens of one of the lowest countries in the world built the largest climbing tower in the world. So the Dutch and the visitors of their beautiful country may support a climbing culture in spite of the landscape around them. Instead of just building straight up, Bjoeks Climb Center has given the Excalibur some pitch and an overhang to make different difficulty levels including some extreme parts where experienced climbers will literally find themselves hanging.
The gnarly climb attracts a lot of visitors — adults and kids — so waiting in the line to the Excalibur walls could take very long time.
