November 4, 2012 (CHICAGO) -- About 2,700 climbers from 38 states and seven countries were taking on the Willis Tower on Sunday, November 4, 2012.
They're either climbing up all 103 flights or hand cycling the equivalent distance during the 4th annual "SkyRise Chicago," (http://ric.convio.net/site/PageServer?pagename=home) the world's tallest indoor climb.
The climb accommodates participants of all abilities, and it benefits the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. ABC7 is a media sponsor of the event.
