Climbing is not a sport for the faint-hearted, but climbing this particular wall is for the daredevils only. Excalibur, as the wall is known, is a freestanding outdoor climbing wall located in the city of Groningen in the Netherlands — and it’s the tallest of its kind in the world.
At just over 121 feet high, including 36 feet of overhang, this freestanding outdoor climbing wall is meant for experienced, independent climbers who are accompanied by someone of similar skills. Excalibur is part of Bjoeks, a climbing gym that caters to all levels, so you can practise your skills inside on the easier walls and then upgrade to Excalibur when you’re ready (give it a few months, or years.) Bjoeks offers courses, including a basic course in belaying and climbing for the novice climbers who wish to climb on their own in the future.
