Rising 85 meters high and 10 meters wide, the new climbing wall at the Bjarke Ingels Group-designed CopenHill is due to open in 2020 and brings the residents of Copenhagen a climbing experience they'd never have otherwise.

While designed as a traditional climbing wall, the routes get more difficult the higher one climbs. The climbing wall will be at the bottom of the ski slope where a platform is being built over the elevator entrance, so that the proper safety measures can be made before and during the climb. 

The experience is only open to "multi-pitch" certified climbers who have the proper experience and skill level to scale the wall safely.
