Do You Have What It Takes?


Historic Banning Mills is home to the world’s tallest free-standing climbing wall! And we are just a short drive from Atlanta, Georgia.

Certified by Guinness World Records, our climbing wall is 140 feet tall and is part of our Adventure Tower. At 14 stories high, our wall includes nine climbing lanes, two rappel walls (up to 95 ft. high), and four overhangs (including a traversing overhang and chimney). Whether you are a beginner or an expert, our unique and dynamic routes are enjoyed by all. And, as you climb your way to the top, you can enjoy the breathtaking views of Snake Creek Gorge! Due to the height of our climbing wall, all climbs are staff-assisted. Participants must be at least 8 years old, and weigh a minimum of 60lbs (maximum of 285lbs).

1 Hour Climb $35 per person*

1 1/2 Hour Climb $40 per person*

*A minimum of two climbers is required to open the tallest freestanding climbing wall in the world. The wall can be done by itself or added on to other adventure treks.
