Redpath Silos x Allez-Up

Not too long ago I got to peek at a transformation taking place in the sud-ouest.  The historic Redpath Silos are birthing to the newest incarnation of the Allez-Up climbing gym in a mere few weeks.
The new facility is the white addition which measures about 55 feet in height is nestled in between the four silos.

The skeleton of the lead wall (which is nearing completion), the gym's come a long way since 2x4s...

 Oh man, and the view!  An awesome vantage point of the downtown skyline.

 Looking up close at the massive PBW tag, can I even call it a tag? It's huge!
