Highest B You've Climbed?

Recommended Posts

Climbing stuff... IDK

With PROTECTION/BELAY (i.e. Friends/Hex's+belayer) or totally free to the EP.

Back when the Frat Boy types started invading rock climbing, my buddies and I started doing buildings in an effort to stay away from those homo's. One easy shit we would just "free" it, and on more difficult buildings we would use nuts/friends/slings for pro, with a second/belayer following the lead climber.

No shit? It must take a huge stretch of the imagination to picture one climbing a B (either out of necessity or desire) in order to jump it.

Got that one figured out now?

climbing the outside of a B is not only out of the question physicaly for a majority of BASE jumpers, it serves very little purpose unless in the middle of nowhere, and that is rare with a jumpable building.

climbers 'buildering' usualy draws a lot of attention, from people inside and outside the building. not to good for keeping low profile at night.

You might consider taking up yoga with Coco to help with getting past threads like this. Don't stress - have a homebrew!

I said I was just kidding ya pickle sniffer!


I was just kidding again by the way, dork.



Sorry. My bad. Didn't notice the kidding part. Post deleted.

But some people really should take up meditation or yoga to help deal with the trauma of posts they don't like. Relax folks - have a homebrew!

Alas, the only people who take yoga are weird-looking fuckers that like to show off just how weird they look. And smell.

That fact was considered before making the suggestion. Thanks for mentioning it though;)

David Adcock climbed the exterior of a 970 foot building in downtown Houston in the 1980s. He wore a skydiving rig when he did it. That's incredible since one's balance is changed so much from wearing a rig. He did it twice. The first climb was at night. The second was at noon and he got into some legal trouble. At least he got the jump.

He climbed it with some sort of strange gear involving glass handling suction cups. My friend has video of it. Buildings were so easy to get at the time that the consequences were minimal to the local community. Also, it was more of a stunt than the traditional stealth building jump.

When he climbed it, the building manager kept removing windows to get him. He kept going around the windows. 20 feet from the top, all the cops and building people were on the top smiling and holding a sign that said "you are guilty of trespassing." He pulled a small wooden plank to use as an exit point. He stuck it between the 1 inch deep groove section that separates the floors. He climbed on it, looked back at the cops, gave them the finger, and then jumped. Unfortanately his platform broke but he came out OK. He opened high and flew a deliberate pattern to exhaust the police on foot. He tried to land on a parking garage but he missed. His witless friend tried to grab some of his lines as he passed which would have killed both of them. The cops got him and did the telephone book treatment on him. Quoting from a website: And as for the phone book -- "They hold the phone book to your face and they punch you. That way it doesn't leave bruises. What can you do? Complain?"
