Building on the success of its previous editions, the Pavillon de l’Arsenal is reinstalling the Vertical Pavilion on World Olympic Day 2019 in partnership with the French Mountaineering Federation (FFME). The spectacular 13-meter tall climbing wall is open all summer long to experienced climbers, amateurs, and beginners. Anyone can come climb to the top of the skylight in the main exhibition hall.
Designed by the architectural and engineering firm of Carrière Didier Gazeau, the Vertical Pavilion is back in a revamped version with new routes for all skill levels; this year, there is also a highly technical route, a true challenge for all climbers!
Open until September 1, the Vertical Pavilion combines a discovery of the city with urban athletics. It includes a summer educational program for children enrolled in Parisian public recreation centers, organized with the support of the Office of School Affairs of the City of Paris. More than 2,000 children will have the chance to learn to climb and discover the sites of the 2024 Summer Olympic Games as they walk through the Pavillon de l’Arsenal’s permanent exhibition.
It’s all yours to climb!
