Climb the “World’s Tallest Artifical Climbing Wall” While Staying at This Hotel in Reno

If you’re looking for that “extra something” while staying at a hotel, you have to check out Whitney Peak Hotel in Reno, Nevada. The hotel located at 255 N Virginia St Reno, NV 89501, features 310 guest rooms with panoramic views of the Sierra’s and it’s a 45-minute-drive to Lake Tahoe.

The hotel is Reno’s first and only non-gaming, non-smoking, and independently owned boutique property. The biggest attraction at this hotel is the artificial climbing wall, called Basecamp, which happens to be the Guinness Book of World Records’ “World’s Tallest Artificial Climbing Wall”.

The 164-foot wall stretches up the east side of the Whitney Peak Hotel and it’s adjacent to the historic Reno Arch.  It also features the only IFSC-certified 15-meter speed wall in the U.S. and a 7,000-square-foot indoor bouldering park with a separate area for younger climbers.

“The wall was built to help foster and provide a new face for Reno’s outdoor enthusiast community,” said Brian Sweeney, Basecamp manager.

Basecamp is currently running during regular business hours, but with capacity limits, and enhanced cleaning measures to follow the CDC guidelines for social distancing and proper sanitation.

The hotel prides itself on creating unqique stays and they’ll customize packages for guests to help them celebrate whatever occasions bring them to Reno. In the past, they’ve recreated the Hangover scene for a Bachelorette party and decorated a guest’s room with pictures of Nicolas Cage for a fan who loved the actor.

Some of the upgrades include a Spooked Up Halloween Package, Romance, Celebration, Bed & Breakfast, Bubbles, and Bathtub of Beers. To see more about the hotel including the upgrades check out their website.
