The US National White Water Center Is About To Open America’s First ‘Deep Water Climbing Facility’


The US National Whitewater Center is about to open America’s first and only permanent “Deep Water Solo Climbing Facility”. In essence, it will include several huge rock climbing walls (25′, 35′ and 45′ tall), with a 16 foot deep pool at the bottom.

The pool at the bottom of the 4 walls will serve as a cushion for both descending and jumping climbers.

The new attraction will be similar to, but much bigger than the temporary ‘solo deep water climbing wall’ that was built last year at the Whitewater Center for their annual Tuckfest:

Do you think you’d be brave enough to climb the wall without a harness?
