Grope Mountain - February 2017, London and Liverpool

Grope Mountain is coming to London and Liverpool for this year’s Valentine’s Day. Designed by Bompas & Parr, Grope Mountain originally launched in 2015 at the Museum of Sex in New York as part of FUNLAND, an interactive exhibition about the pleasures and perils of an eroticised fairground. The installation is inspired by modern climbing walls and made with custom holds, orifices and appendages – many cast from volunteers’ anatomies from the original show.

The installation debuts in the UK, with a higher course and more routes to ascend. In collaboration with The Climbing Hangar Group, it will open in London before travelling to Liverpool next month.
 

The installation has already been, er, welcomed by the press:

'The world's most obscene climbing wall' - Daily Mail

'World's most obscene climbing wall' has handholds in the shape of boobs, bums and PENISES' - The Mirror

'You’ll soon be able to climb a wall of genitals' - Metro

'A kinky climbing wall is being, um, erected in London this Valentine's Day' - Time Out

'NSFW: The rudest attraction Liverpool has ever seen is on its way for Valentine's Day' - The Liverpool Echo
 

The idea behind the wall is that as climbers engage physically with the holds the experience encourages a rethink of participants’ own bodies while encouraging a reappraisal of conventional climbing walls - also said to be intriguingly erotic through its combination of strength, balance and mental agility enhanced by the voyeurism of spectators watching below. Grope Mountain turbocharges that affect, making the erotic nature of the experience all the more manifest for climbers and spectators alike, resulting in an unrivalled date night for Valentine’s Day. Each climber will also recive a complimetary Love Potion.
