Geocache Description:

Urban Climbing | Buildering






[ DESCRIPTION ]

Buildering also known as urban climbing, structuring, or stegophily is the act of climbing on (usually) the outside of buildings and other artificial structures. The word "buildering" is a portmanteau, combining the word "building" with the climbing term "bouldering". If done without ropes or protection far off the ground, buildering may be dangerous. It is often practiced outside legal bounds, and is thus mostly undertaken at night-time. Night climbing is a particular branch of buildering which has been practiced for many years in the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, England, and elsewhere. Night climbing, as distinct from buildering, is performed mainly by undergraduates under cover of darkness. The term "night climbing" has replaced the older term "roof climbing". Adepts of buildering who are seen climbing on buildings without authorization are regularly met by police forces upon completing their exploit. Spectacular acts of buildering, such as free soloing skyscrapers, are usually accomplished by lone, experienced climbers, sometimes attracting large crowds of passers-by and media attention. These remain relatively rare.Buildering can also take a form more akin to bouldering, which tends towards ascending or traversing shorter sections of buildings and structures. While still generally frowned upon by property owners, some, such as the University of Colorado at Boulder and Tufts University, turn a blind eye towards the practice in many locations.Although often done as a solo sport, buildering has also become a popular group activity. As in more traditional rock climbing, routes are established and graded for difficulty.


[ APRAKSTS ]

Bilderings - pazīstams arī kā pilsētvides kāpšana. Bilderings ir viens no kāpšanas paveidiem, un kā par tā rašanās laiku tiek uzskatīts 1895. gads, kad toreiz pazīstams alpīnists, Džefrijs Vintrops Jangs, esot kāpis Anglijā, Kembridžas universitātē, pa jumtu. Šodien builderings ir pazīstams diezgan daudziem, bet populārākās lokācijas, kur ar to nodarbojas ir Anglijā, Austrumeiropā. Lielākoties ar šo sporta veidu aizraujas jaunieši, kuri vēlāk savus sasniegumus publicē sociālajos portālos, piemēram, youtube. Kā vienu no profesionāļiem varu minēt Alanu Robertu, kurš bez aprīkojuma ir iekarojis augstākās Pasaule ēkas, kā piemēram, Eifeļa torni Francijā, Sidnejas operu Austrālijā, debesskrāpjus Amerikā utt. Viņš tiek dēvēts arī par cilvēku - zirnekli. Šis sporta veids savā ziņā ir nelikumīgs, tādēļ bieži kāpšana notiek pa naktīm. Pārsvarā šajā sporta veidā neizmanto virves un tamlīdzīgu aprīkojumu. Izmanto tikai klinšu kurpītes, magnēziju un matraci kritienu gadījumā. Šis sporta veids ir arī lielā mērā bīstams, tādēļ netiek rekomendēts cilvēkiem bez iepriekšējas kāpšanas pieredzes un fiziskās izturības. Iemaņas un izturību var apgūt gan iekštelpu klinšu sienu zālēs, gan trenējoties pie zemiem, vienkāršiem objektiem. Visbiežāk bilderings ir grupu sporta veids, kur viens otru var gan uzmundrināt un atbalstīt, gan vajadzības gadījumā izsaukt palīdzību. Šis ir tiešām interesants sporta veids. Ja esat nolēmis ar to nodarboties - iesaku to darīt kopā ar kādu pieredzējušu kāpēju.


[ ATTENTION! ]

Attention! This cache has a high terrain level, this means, that you`ll need a specific equipment, for example - climbing gear. Here is hard to get the cache withot teamwork. It`s posible to get the cache withot any equipment, but it`s dangerous and it isn`t recommended. You`ll need old clothes, because you can damage them. Don’t do stupid things because none of the caches is worth your life or health. Good luck!


ŠIS IR T5 SLĒPNIS! Ja Tu neesi pats uzkāpis, vai vismaz asistējis kāpējam, palīdzot ar ekipējuma izvietošanu - Tev nav morālas tiesības šo slēpni pielogot kā atrastu!

THIS IS T5 GEOCACHE! If you did not climb up there or at least helped climber to get there - you definitely do not have moral rights to log this cache as found!
