Climbing Wall

 

The water tower that used to hold Glisson's water supply from 1954 to 1997 has been recycled and redesigned as a six-route Climbing Wall. Alpine Towers Inc. engineered and carried out a plan to construct six separate climbing routes on the side of the existing water tower. All routes utilize new auto-belay technology. While using similar climbing holds as the Alpine Tower, the Climbing Wall is more similar to a rock face as participants climb mostly straight up and down. The Alpine Tower is more like climbing a very tall tree with ropes and ladders built into it.

Note: The Climbing Wall can only be booked in conjunction with the Zip Line. See Reservations for details or contact Shirley (706-864-6181 or info@glisson.org).
