Towering over 121 feet (37 meters) in the air, the Excalibur at the Klimcentrum Bjoeks (Bjoeks Climb Center) also designed by J.P.Moehrlein architekt in the town of Groningen, The Netherlands, is considered to be the tallest climbing wall in the world. What makes climbing the Excalibur a challenge, aside from the monumental height, is a sleek curve 36 feet (11 meters) out from the base that creates an artificial overhang as one encounters when climbing a real peak. Because of the curve it is possible to climb the tower in many different ways, each posing a different challenge. At Bjoeks Climb Center, there is an array of indoor climbing walls, including one designed for first-timers and another that's at a 45 degree angle. There's also a large indoor-outdoor bordering area with 117 boulders to scamper over. The Bjoeks Climb Center was started in 1996 by Gert van der Veen and his friend and climbing partner, Alco Pols.
