Sondrio Street Climbing

5th April sees the 5th edition of the event 'Sondrio Street Climbing', a festival of urban climbing taking place in the city of Sondrio, Italy. 25 problems have been set by mountain guide Gianluca Maspes with climbing getting under way at midday and finishing at 6pm. Seniors will then face a semi-final on the granite columns of the Credito Valtelinese Bank before the finalists take on the 40m high clock tower. After the climbing, the main square of the city will host the Sondrio Street Fest, a party featuring live music, food, drink and revelry. Keep an eye out for a video of the event in the coming weeks. A big shout out to all of the sponsors for making it possible and check out the event's Facebook and Twitter feeds for all the latest news....

Shanghai Tower (650m)

Vadim Makhorov, http://dedmaxopka.livejournal.com/72833.html: "Hello all from the world's biggest city – Shanghai. For about a month Raskalov Vitaliy and I are in China. I already have quite a bit stories to tell about where we have been and what we have seen, but you will read about it in my next post. I dreamed to visit Shanghai for a while. One of the main sights for us was Shanghai tower, a huge skyscraper in the city center, which currently is under construction. The height of it will be 632 meters. When the construction will be completed, the tower will become the highest building in China and world’s second high building after Burj Khalifa (if not to mention TV tower in Tokyo, which is only 2 meters higher). Ten days ago, during the celebration of Chinese New Year, the entire country was resting – all the people had vacations, so as the builders.

Flow buildering series - final episode

Buildering.net upgrade to Drupal 7

Hey y'all. So we moved to Drupal 7. Don't mind us while the site looks like ass for a little while. I've got some theming work to do. Also, online guidebooks are down for a while as well.

The good news is:

- we're getting a new look.
- it should be easier for admins to post content.
- I'm pregnant.

Only two of the above are true.

Cambridge Rooftops POV

As all buildering-enthusiasts will know, Cambridge has an incredibly rich history of rooftop incursions. Phil Doyle continues this tradition giving us a point-of-view journey across the skyline of his home town.

No UBC Buildering tomorrow on account of...

...the asshole who's trying to rape women on campus. http://bc.ctvnews.ca/man-tries-to-drag-teen-into-woods-in-another-ubc-se...

Last week our numbers were a little low, three dudes wearing jeans and dark hoodies, skulking around in the bushes and in dark corners. So, lest we freak anyone the fuck out, I think we should call it off out of respect for the ladies.

Or we go vigilante on his ass. (I just watched Kick Ass 2.) Dress as 17 yr old girls?

In other news -- I tweaked something in my arm last week and it still hasn't fully healed. This may or may not be a contributing factor to this week's cancellation.
