Awesome. Of course there are Rock Monkeys…but then there is the Builderer movement. Not that a mountain rock playground like Boulder, Colorado—my hometown—necessitates scrambling up concrete walls, but for those without such easy access to quality bouldering, what a way to be inventive. I’ve gathered this has been going on for awhile, but just now discovered it on Climbing.com. Check out their Video, Concrete Mountains at Climbing.com (sorry, can’t link to it as it’s a non-circulated video).
Builderers lead-climb, top rope, and traverse anything that can be climbed, concrete, brick, etc. Take your pick. Explorers of the urban landscape, digging in with their fingers and toes. Alain Robert has some fantastic/extreme solos on large buildings. Talk about creativity! But I’ll let the pics and videos speak for themselves.
Keep your brains outside the boxes everybody!
