 The proposed wall, which would be built as part of a renovation of the old Fitzgeralds Casino, would reach heights of 163 feet as part of a multi-tiered design.  Here is visual of the wall from the designer, Entre Prises:

On their website Entre Prises has this to say about the design concept of the wall:

  • The tallest climbing wall in the world at 50 meters / 163 feet
  • World Championship Competition area
  • IFSC Certified, Official World Record Speed Wall
  • Belay Ledges – for multi-pitch climbing and training
  • Advanced Wall from 5.11 to 5.14
  • Intermediate Wall from 5.9 to 5.11
  • Beginner Wall from 5.2 to 5.8

The climbing wall and a 7,000 square ft. bouldering area will be part of a larger “CommRow” project to revitalize the hotel.  If all goes according to plan the wall could be open by this summer.

    Wow, nice project, good luck to the persons that are going to realise this project.

    But to state that this wall could host the world championships is… well … marketing, yeah that’s it marketing.

    In reality you need 4 simultanious routes that have an overhang of at least 5-6 meters. Seems this wall has place for 2 routes of maximum 5 meters

    I can tell you that the folks putting this project together are very much on top of their game. If it’s possible to host the world championships here, it will be done. This is going to be the only wall certified to this level in the US–on top of being the tallest in the world–so if it’s going to happen anywhere in this country, I’d guess that here is a safe bet. 🙂
