haha nah its not that bad I do wild climbing all the time. This thing is way different of course. Its a ton of technical access techniques, rappelling, free climbing, and so on. We do also have a 150 ft manlift that someone will be operating from the ground doing the lower members.

This thing is the largest movable structure in North America! It stands 485 ft to the top fully arced weighing in around 17 million lbs
