Event Details

Participants will climb 65 floors up the historic Lake Point Tower, with the first heat starting promptly at 7:00am. Check-in will take place across the street in the West Park at Navy Pier. Climbers should arrive no later than 20 minutes prior to their heat.

For all you hard-core climbers, we encourage you to be part of the elite Two-Timers Club and climb the Tower twice. For everyone else, it will take an average of 20 minutes to reach the top. No matter what kind of shape you’re in, you can make it. Really! Water will be offered along the way and you’re free to climb at your own pace.
