Experience City Climb, the highest open-air building ascent in the world, and test your limits as you see New York City in a whole new way. Scale the outside of a skyscraper more than 1,200 feet (366 meters) above the ground, then lean out and look down from the highest outdoor platform in New York City. Suit up and meet your climb guide who will escort you throughout the experience and ensure you are safe and comfortable in your climbsuit. Feel the anticipation as you enter base camp. Harness up and connect to the rail that will keep you firmly attached to the building for the duration of the climb. Then, feel the rush as you start your climb on the 45-degree angle staircase. Nothing can prepare you for the feeling of being in the open air over New York City at a height of 1,200 feet. With your adrenaline pumping and your heart racing, dare to peer over the edge and see the iconic city below. After your once-in-a-lifetime experience, get back down to earth, after which you will be provided with details of your video souvenir documenting your climb. Digital photos of your experience are also available for purchase.
