Partial Practice Climb Scheduled at the Iconic Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, January 24, 2015

The January 24, 2015 partial practice climb at Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas is your only chance to #TrytheTower before the March 1, 2015 full stair climb, Scale the Strat.

Allowing climbers into the stairwells of Stratosphere Tower is extremely rare," said Kim Huff, Director of Tower Operations. "In fact, this practice climb gives climbers access to levels they won't even see on the actual climb day.

Not sure if climbers can tackle all 108 floors and 1,455 steps inside the iconic Stratosphere Tower on March 1, 2015 for the seventh annual extreme stair climb, Scale the Strat?

Here’s the only chance to #TrytheTower.

The American Lung Association in Nevada and Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower present a special partial practice climb on Saturday, January 24, 2015 at 7 a.m., allowing climbers access to the stairwells at the very top of Stratosphere Tower, Level 101 to Level 112.

The cost is $30, and each climber will receive two VIP coupons for free admission to enjoy Stratosphere Tower with a friend on Saturday, January 24 or Sunday, January 25, 2015, 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, 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 tower before race day on March 1, 2015.

“Allowing climbers into the stairwells of Stratosphere Tower is extremely rare,” said Kim Huff, Director of Tower Operations at Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower. “In fact, this practice climb gives climbers access to levels they won’t even 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 in 30-minute intervals. 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. It’s a fun way to challenge yourself and friends without the intensity but if climbers are looking to push their limits, they still can. All participants can sign up for the full climb after the practice climb at a special discounted registration rate of $40 (plus $150 fundraising minimum).
