NEW YORK, New York – Opening November 9, 2021, the highest external building climb in the world, located above Edge, challenges adventurers to scale the outside of a 1,200+ foot supertall building, then lean out from the outdoor platform at the top of the skyscraper.
City Climb is an aerial adventure experience located at the crown of 30 Hudson Yards that offers guests unparalleled views of New York City, while traversing open edged platforms and stairways. Following a comprehensive safety briefing, Climbers are fitted with specially designed safety harnesses, and secured into the course by City Climb Guides via two cables attached to a trolley that seamlessly move with the Climber throughout the entire journey. After ascending 32 steps to The Cliff, and looking down 1,190 feet to the City below, Climbers approach The Stair which consists of 161 steps on an approximately 45 degree incline. Once they reach The Apex at 1,271 feet, Climbers will have the opportunity to lean out and hang over the platform. The experience culminates with a celebratory medal for inaugural guests and a victory lap on Edge's outdoor viewing area on the 100th floor, where Climbers can enjoy the glass floor, angled glass walls, outdoor skyline steps, or a champagne toast in the sky to their bucket list accomplishment.
