UK's Highest Outdoor Climbing Wall Opens In West Yorkshire

The structure is expected to attract thousands of visitors.

Today sees the launch of the UK's highest man-made outdoor climbing wall right here in West Yorkshire.

The structure, at ROKT climbing centre in Brighouse, is taller than the Tower of London and Angel of the North. It has been built on the side of an old grain silo.

The 118 foot-high wall is expected to draw in people from across the country.

ROKT owner Euan Noble said: " It's very high and there's very few man-made structures that are this high that you can climb on. We're expecting to see it bring thousands of visitors to the area."

The £75,000 project is a partnership between the centre and Calderdale Council.
