Buildering (urban climbing) is climbing the outside of buildings and other urban/manmade structures.

Quick Warning

This form of climbing can be very dangerous and is usually done outside of legal bounds, which is why it is done typically at night. I know exactly what you are thinking…thanks mom.

But hey that doesn’t stop us does it?

I didn’t think so.

So why urban climbing?

  • Sometimes it is all that is available
  • It’s fun
  • Gives you a different kind of rush than bouldering
  • and much more

And when you do go urban climbing make sure that you use a crash pad and some spotters.

Concrete usually isn’t very forgiving.
