Buildering is the practice of climbing the outside of buildings or manmade structures. Buildering is extremely dangerous. Climbing usually involves ropes and safety protection when one gets over a few feet above ground. But protection is relatively rare in buildering. It also is quite often illegal and thus is commonly done at night to reduce the risk of attracting the authorities.

List of Davis Buildering sites:

* By far the coolest of any buildering sites is the Social Science and Humanities (UCD Death Star) building on UCD. Every roof can be reached, there are problems all over the place, and the roofs are some of he highest in town, allowing views for miles and beautiful star gazing. The most fun problems are getting past the locked glass doors on the elevator towers.
* Young Hall has a series of pipes and shelves and windows to climb on the east side. Plenty of cool things up top, and the roof door is usually unlocked....
* The Outdoor Adventures building has a few climbing holds bolted to the outside to give you a start.

Rumour has it that now there are cameras watching DHS at night —Daubert

2010-03-16 01:37:06   Both Nugget markets are climbable - the South Davis one has a ladder up the back (with an easily by-passable cover) and the Covell one has a small shed and series of pipes up the back. This page is in need of some serious revision. —THernandez
