45 feet is probably the top of the gym; assuming she was top roping my money's on an incorrectly tied knot. Hope she pulls through, and my prayers go to her family!

Edit-- I didn't catch where the article confirms that the wall is 45 feet.

It mentions 45 feet twice, including citing the company's website.
