Climbing a 500 foot dam

In this post I wrote about the world's tallest ( 121 feet tall ) free standing wall.

If you think that would be a climbing experience you'll never forget, wait till you hear about this...
The Diga di Luzzone is both a working dam and one of the largest artificial climbing walls in the world. Bolted in the 1990s, this spot in Switzerland is home to one of the two largest man-made climbing routes in the world, a 540-foot, five-pitch monster that curves its way up the side of the Luzzone dam. As climbers go through the pitches, the concave wall changes character, starting off slabby, then straightening out to vertical.
