The world's highest climbing wall in Abu Dhabi looks more like an architectural gem than a sports facility

While Dubai might boast the world’s tallest building in the form of the Burj Khalifa, Abu Dhabi is laying claim to the world’s tallest climbing wall.

The facility which will also feature the world’s largest indoor skydiving flight chamber, will house an indoor climbing wall which will extend to 43 meters in height.

Located on Yas Island, the climbing wall will open on 29 November is part of a brand new Dhs367 million sports facility, Clymb.

Inside, there will be a total of four walls, each with a different level of difficulty, but what we’re really loving is the architectural exterior which has been developed by Miral, and resembles a geometric crytal dome. 

"Clymb Abu Dhabi is designed to present unique sporting challenges to active lifestyle enthusiasts from around the world. Appealing to expert climbers, skydivers and novices alike, the sporting facility will feature four walls of varying difficulty, including the world’s highest indoor climbing wall at 140 ft, and the world’s widest skydiving chamber, allowing professional guests to mimic a skydiving experience spanning over 32 ft,” Miral shared on its website.
