UK’s Tallest Wall Opens


Grain silos have been repurposed into climbing gyms for decades here in North America. Now the UK gets in on the action with the new Roktface at ROKT climbing center in Brighouse, West Yorkshire which is just southwest of Leeds.

Billed as the “highest man-made outdoor climbing wall” in the UK, the silos are 36 meters (118 feet) tall. The £75,000 ($97,000) project is a partnership between the climbing center and the local Calderdale Council.

Just don't look down… ????
