Which building,bridge,or other construction do you like climbing on most.
I like the old railway bridge near market harborough with its large stone blocks.Two drainpipes at 20 feet up can be grabbed and save many a fall to the ground when vouldering.

I did an overhang formed by the underside of a concrete staircase at Aberdeen university physics department.It's a long reach backwards.Most people swing too much and come off.

I know a carpark with a 15m ice pillar on it. Steep and thin, needs to be done at night and avoiding the cameras.
Will do it again this year.

They take some convincing that you're just training for climbs.

About HS, over deep water, perfect for climbing while pissed.

In reply to BolderLicious: The bridges at Marlborough are pretty good - long traverses on a fine-grained sandstone at about V4 to V8, and they stay dry in the rain!
Overseas, my favourite has to be a V Diff solo to the top of the Bayon temple at Angkor, shown the way by 5 year-olds in flip-flops!

In reply to BolderLicious: only asking as I did it in1980, no idea if it had been done before, or since, 3 of us did it and we got arrested. Grades probably HVS.

Climbing when pissed:what if you fall asleep and drown!
A woman froze to death in her car a few days ago
because she was drunk and went to sleep.
