Cansult Maunsell-designed Clymb attraction, with biggest climbing wall in the world, will open in Abu Dhabi this month

Clymb is set to become the ultimate hub for adventure in the region
– His Excellency Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak

Clymb Abu Dhabi, a climbing and sky diving attraction on Abu Dhabi's Yas Island, is to open on 29 November 2019, according to owner Miral.

The building was designed by Cansult Maunsell, an operating company based in Dubai and part of global consulting firm Aecom.

The US$100m (€89.8m, £77.3m) project will deliver the world's tallest indoor climbing wall at 140ft (43 metres) tall, and its widest skydiving flight chamber, spanning over 32ft (10 metres). Miral said it will have challenges that appeal to both novice and expert climbers and skydivers.

The architecture of the rock-like Clymb building has been inspired, said Miral, by the rugged, mountainous landscape of the United Arab Emirates, popular already with skydivers and rock climbers.

The attraction will also feature a range of F&B outlets, and space for parties and social events. An air-conditioned passageway links Clymb Abu Dhabi to other Yas Island attractions, such as Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Yas Mall.

Chairman of Miral, His Excellency Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, said the facility would provide a "world-class sporting experience", and added: "As one of the most highly-anticipated new attractions in Abu Dhabi, it is set to become the ultimate hub for adventure in the region, offering something completely unique, challenging and unforgettable for all ability levels."

Yas Island's other attractions, which are in close proximity to Clymb, are Yas Waterworld and Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi.
