World highest climbing wall in Holland

World highest climbing wall in Holland
AMSTERDAM: The world's highest climbing wall is situated in the town of Groningen, The Netherlands. It is 37 metres (121 ft) high and is known as the Excalibur.

The town of groningen, in the Netherlands boasts of highest free standing climbing wall in the world…well actually a tower.

This massive freestanding tower is specifically located at Klimcentrum Bjoeks, the curved climbing tower is 37 metres tall including a plateau and known as “the Dxcalibur“.

The north east wall is a long slab, here are some easy routes might start from 5b-6a. But the southwest wall is pretty heavy overhanging, very long-term routes.

You will find in most cases 6c-7c on overhang and seems to require a lot more physical shape along with technical knowhow. All of the walls which are just as beautiful as Excalibur and the holds in Klimcentrum Bjoeks were built by Polsar climbing elements.
