Scale the Strat Announces First Ever Sneak “Peak” Practice Climb on Saturday, January 18, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) November 14, 2013

For the first time in Scale the Strat’s six-year history, climbers will get the opportunity to experience the altitude inside Stratosphere Tower during a special sneak “peak” practice climb months before the March 2, 2014 extreme stair climb event.

The first ever Scale the Strat Sneak “Peak” Practice Climb will be on Saturday, January 18, 2014 starting at 7 a.m. inside the stairwells of the iconic Stratosphere Tower, at Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower.

Practice climbers will be assigned to small groups and allowed to climb the 234 stairs between Level 101 and Level 112 as many times as possible in 30-minute intervals. Level 112 of Stratosphere Tower is above the 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.

“This is truly a special experience as we only open up the stairwell inside our Tower to the public on rare occasions and we have never allowed access to this outdoor area of Level 112,” said Kimberly Huff, Operations Manager at Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower.

The practice climb is limited to the first 200 climbers who register on The cost is $40. Interested climbers can reserve on line or sign up on practice climb day at the Stratosphere Tower (based on availability). All proceeds support American Lung Association in Nevada (ALAN).

“We have had so many requests to experience what the climb is like over the years that we decided to give potential climbers and veteran Scale the Strat climbers the opportunity to test their endurance and get a taste of what it takes to conquer all 1,455 steps inside Stratosphere Tower,” said Allison Newlon-Moser, Executive Director of the American Lung Association in Nevada.

Those who participate in the January 18 Scale the Strat Sneak “Peak” Practice Climb will be able to sign up for Scale the Strat 2014 at a discounted “super saver” rate of $40 – a savings of up to $35. All climbers are asked to fundraise an additional $150 for the American Lung Association in Nevada (ALAN).

In 2013, a record 560 people signed up to participate in Scale the Strat and climbed all 108 floors and 1,455 steps inside The Stratosphere Tower, the highest building west of the Mississippi River. The event raised an unprecedented $175,000 for the American Lung Association in Nevada’s mission of preventing lung diseases and promoting lung health.

Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower is offering a special room rate for those traveling to participate in the Scale the Strat Sneak “Peak” practice climb or who want to make a “stay-cation” out of the weekend. Practice climbers can receive a room rate of $65 for Friday, January 17 and Saturday, January 18, 2014. To take advantage of this special rate, call 800-998-6937 and use the code C-ALAPC.
