I am interested in knowing where the tallest walls are, say 55 feet and over.

#1) this ^^

and 2) lots of silos and elevator shaft gyms out there. Probably need to wait out for a lot of local responses to get an answer.

Lakeshore Athletic Club in Chicago claimed to have the tallest indoor climbing walls in the midwest at 100ft, but I believe LSAC is now closed.

At 164' the "tallest in the world" according to them.

Considering that the climbing wall on the Lago di Luzzone dam is 165m tall, I don't think that they are correct in saying that it's the tallest in the world. As far as the US goes, they are probably the tallest here.

To the OP, I don't know the height, but the wall on the cliff lodge at Snowbird looks pretty tall.

The Cliff Lodge is 10 stories tall plus a couple of sub-levels. Overall, the outside wall is around 120'. Also, Snowbird removed all the holds several years ago when they retired the climbing wall from their summer activities.

Since this is the "Indoor Gyms" sub-forum should we assume the OP was asking about indoor walls?

If so then neither of these fit the bill and the NTOPC seems to be top dog at the moment.

If we're just talking about "man made" structures then I'm thinking the Luzzone dam is probably the winner.

[edit for misspelling]
