“Worlds Highest Climbing Wall”


A climbing wall suspended underneath a hot air balloon.

A Colorado climbing school took climbing to new heights with what they claim to be the “highest climbing wall in the world”. The Denver Climbing Company recently floated up to 4,000 feet in a hot air balloon and then dangled a home-built climbing wall off the side.

Lead Instructor for the school, Daniel Krug who built the wall, reported on Facebook that there was only a rope for repelling down to the bottom of the wall and then climbers soled to the top. He also wrote that, “all climbing ended in falling.” But not to worry, everyone wore a parachute.
