Welcome to CLYMB™ Abu Dhabi

by Eddie Rayner

Good news, parents! CLYMB™ Abu Dhabi, the new sports and leisure attraction on Yas Island, is now open to the public. It is home to the world’s largest indoor skydiving flight chamber and world’s tallest indoor climbing wall – two record-breaking experiences which are set to appeal to sports and leisure enthusiasts.

The opening event at the end of November 2019 witnessed a thrilling entertainment showcased by record-breaking skydiver, daredevil, and BASE jumper, Felix Baumgartner, who took a flight in the chamber – as well an exhilarating performance by Red Bull indoor skydiving athletes and gold medallists, Kyra Poh from Singapore and Maja Kuczyńska from Poland. Red Bull climbing athlete and professional rock-climbing champion, Sasha DiGiulian from the US laid the first climbing chalk marks as she scaled the world’s tallest indoor climbing wall.

Suitable for guests of all ages and skill levels, and with expert instructors supervising at all times, CLYMB™’s skydiving flight chamber is 10 metres (32 feet) wide and 32 metres (104 feet) high. Its indoor climbing wall is 43 metres (141 feet) in height, and features five walls of various degrees of height and difficulty. The attraction is conveniently accessible through Yas Mall and is adjacent to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.

CLYMB™ Abu Dhabi’s striking architecture has been inspired by the UAE’s rugged, mountainous landscape. With its geometric exterior resembling a crystal-like structure, the venue has already become a Yas Island landmark, adding to the integrated leisure, lifestyle and entertainment experiences available to visitors.
