The ferocity of scaling nature’s rugged landscape is replicated through the outstanding climbing wall in Groningen, The Netherlands. The Excalibur towers at 121 feet as the tallest climbing wall in the world at the Bjoeks Climb Center. Its colossal height isn’t the only thing that makes it such a difficult climb; a sleek curve that’s 36 feet from the base creates an artificial overhang which can also be experienced when climbing a real peak. The curve creates a variation of challenges for a thrill-thirsty seeker to enjoy.
