Pfft, Some Legendary Sword You Are!: Excaliber, The World's Tallest Climbing Wall

Personally, I only do three kinds of climbing: up the corporate ladder, sadly out of bed in the morning, and carefully out of my truck (hopefully without showing my panties). But for those of you that like to get a little more physical, *POW!* Haha, you said you liked it!

Towering over 121 feet in the air (37 meters) and with an overhang of 36 feet (11 meters) the Excalibur at the Klimcentrum Bjoeks (Bjoeks Climb Center) in the town of Groningen, The Netherlands, is considered to be the tallest climbing wall in the world. As long as you don't take into consideration mountains, cliffs or other man-made structures not specifically designed for climbing. The curved design results in sections that are easy for beginners to tackle, as well as some extremely difficult parts where experienced climbers will literally find themselves hanging.

Whoa whoa whoa -- are you really trying to argue mountains weren't made for climbing?! Hold on, we're gonna need a ruling on this. Hey God -- mountains: made for climbing or not? Huh? What do you mean you're not answering because I've been praying my neighbor will die? But he doesn't pick up after his dogs! AND he uses beach towels for window treatments! God, the man deserves to die and you know it.

Thanks to Erik, who once ran into Big Foot while climbing a mountain once but nobody believes him because he's a notoriously dirty liar. Notoriously dirty.
