An urban adventure destination in Reno, Nevada: a 164-foot-high climbing wall

The biggest little city of the world has a new hot spot: a 164-foot upwall climbing “arena” at the CommRow, which officially opened on October 1st, 2011 [1]. The east-facing climbing wall decorates the remodeled facade of the former Fitzgeralds Casino & Hotel on North Virginia Street between Second Street and Commercial Row in Downtown Reno [2,3]. And it is not just ornamental, it's a challenge. In addition to the outdoor facilities, rock & wall sports enthusiasts will find climbing complexes indoors. If weather conditions in the Sierra Nevada are not right for your climbing plans, they might be at the CommRow skyscraper. What about a training session to get ready for your next or first abseiling adventure?
