Luzzone Dam

Lago di Luzzone is a lake in Ticino, Switzerland.The arch dam Luzzone (225 m) was completed in 1963. In the years 1997–1998, its height was increased by 17 m. One wall of the dam currently features the world's highest artificial climbing wall. A German manufacturer of climbing holds installed a line of over 650 artificial holds and bolts. The course covers a vertical distance of 165 meters, going from the base of the dam to the top.The climb must be done as a sport climb, in multiple pitches. Furthermore, the lowest holds were placed several meters above the ground to deter casual visitors from climbing on them.
