L’Escalade is the concept of an Indiana based visionary passionately devoted to the sport of free climbing. The renound Red River Gorge as one of the premier clime sites in the world, set the stage the location in Lexington Kentucky. This 25,000 square foot building highlights a 120’ long 50’ tall free clime wall inspired by French crags and the famous Buoux Wall in Provence, France. This towering wall is complimented a vast array of bouldering challenges and a 120’ IFSC World Cup competition wall. In addition L’Escalade provides training walls, instruction studio, a Yoga studio, and Cross-Fit training. The resulting design is a distinctly internal building to create the “cavernous” environment for all weather / all season climbing.
