What is city climb?
City Climb, the highest external building climb in the world, is a one-of-a-kind aerial adventure experience. Located above Edge, the highest outdoor sky deck in the Western Hemisphere, City Climb challenges Climbers to scale the outside of a 1,200+ foot supertall building, then lean out from the outdoor platform at the pinnacle of the skyscraper for the ultimate skyscraping adventure.
At the end of the journey, Climbers can enjoy a victory lap at Edge with entry included in your ticket.
Is City Climb safe?
The safety of our Climbers and Climb Guides is our primary concern. City Climb was carefully engineered and rigorously tested to meet or exceed all local and federal safety standards and guidelines. All equipment is inspected daily and signed off by both our maintenance technicians and our Climb Guides. All personnel complete extensive training to provide you with this experience of a lifetime. Climbers also receive a safety briefing to familiarize themselves with all equipment and as well as the course prior to starting their adventure. Following the comprehensive safety briefing, Climbers are fitted with specially designed safety harnesses, and secured into the course by City Climb Guides via lanyards attached to a trolley, that which seamlessly moves with the Climber throughout the entire journey.
