Are You Ready? "Scale The Strat" Coming Up!

The Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower, on behalf of The American Lung Association in Nevada, will open up the top flights of stairs at the iconic Stratosphere Tower for a special #TrytheTower practice climb on Saturday, January 23, 2016 from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.

The practice climb will allow climbers access to the stairwells at the very top of Stratosphere Tower, Level 101 to Level 112.  The cost is $30, and the Stratosphere has generously offered for each climber to receive two coupons for free admission to enjoy Stratosphere Tower with a friend for use at a later date, up to a $40 value.

Climbers can sign up for the practice climb at or register onsite the day of the practice climb by the Top of World podium inside Stratosphere Tower on the second level, starting at 6:30 a.m.

The practice climb helps fund the American Lung Association in Nevada’s mission of preventing lung disease and promoting lung health while giving climbers their only chance to try the iconic Stratosphere Tower before Scale the Strat race day on Sunday, February 28, 2016 where climbers will tackle all 108 floors and 1,455 steps.

“The thousands of visitors who visit the Stratosphere Tower every day are not allowed in the stairwells so this is a very special opportunity for Scale the Strat climbers, or potential climbers,” said Kim Huff, Director of Tower Operations at Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower. “In fact, this practice climb will give climbers access to levels they won’t see on the actual climb day.”

Practice climbers can tackle the 234 stairs between Level 101 and Level 112 in small groups as many times as possible. Level 112 of Stratosphere Tower is above the world famous Observation Deck and four floors above the official Scale the Strat finish line.  As climbers reach Level 112, they will be outdoors and experience one of the best views in Las Vegas.

Unlike the full climb, the practice climb is not timed, allowing for a more personalized approach and customized workout.  The #TrytheTower practice climb allows climbers to have fun with friends or get an extreme stair workout.
