Vertigo is something that sadly an awful lot of people suffer from. We here at ladders-online sell 3 very distinct sorts, Extension Ladders DIY and Extension Ladders Industrial and Extension Ladders Trade. But to be honest even the smallest of these two types of extension ladders are going to be a challenge if you do indeed suffer from Vertigo. And if you do suffer from it then don’t try to climb a ladder yourself. Try and hire someone or maybe get a neighbour to help you out. Because once you are up the ladder it can be quite hard for people to rescue should you suddenly freeze! Hard to rescue you but not impossible. What we are going to take a look at is a completely different story…
It’s not often we get to travel here, but today we are flying over to The Netherlands to take a look at Excalibur, because it is officially the world’s tallest climbing wall.
If you’re into extreme hobbies, especially climbing, we have something special for you today. If you like to climb, I’m sure that you climbed all sorts of walls before, but what about the tallest climbing wall in the world? Would you be brave enough to climb it?As for the tallest climbing wall in the world, it’s located in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and it’s 37 meters tall or 121 ft. Interesting thing about this wall is that it is called Excalibur, and that it has a strange shape. You would expect to see a straight wall for climbing, but Excalibur is slightly bended and therefore a greater challenge to all the climbers. This wall is climbable from all sides and great challenge for all wall climbers out there.
There’s not a better feeling that standing on top of a 37 meter tall wall and watching the world bellow you. That’s something special and it’s definitely something that you should experience.Of course, if you’re afraid of heights, there’s a safety one mattress down bellow. One mattress might not be enough, but it’s good to know that it’s there.If you’re into climbing you should visit Excalibur and try it on your own, but if you’re afraid of heights, make sure that you check out these pictures but to be honest it just doesn’t do it justice. You have to see the terror with your own eyes.
And if you can even climb 1/10th of Excalibur then you can climb even our tallest extension ladders!
P.S. The first main image was taken 2011 during a large balloon festival that was held in the grounds of the climbing wall.
