Building (Eng. Buildering) – a kind of extreme sports, in which participants climb the outside of buildings and other urban structures. The word “building” is a language contamination, a hybrid word consisting of the word “building” and the term “bouldering” (bouldering, a separate type of climbing).
Usually, building involves free climbing in difficult conditions and can be extremely dangerous. Often carried out illegally, building is mostly done at night. Connoisseurs of building, seen climbing buildings without permission, are regularly met by the police after completing their stunts. Exciting building actions, such as climbing free skyscrapers, are usually performed alone by experienced climbers, sometimes attracting the attention of a large crowd of passers-by and the media, but such cases are rare.
Building can also take a form more akin to bouldering, which tends to climb and / or cross shorter sections of buildings and structures. While property owners still largely condemn such actions, some, such as the University of Colorado at Boulder, in many cases turn a blind eye to such actions.
Although building is often done solo, it has also become a popular group sport. As in more traditional climbing, buildings are set up and classified according to the difficulty of overcoming them.
Less impressive forms of urban climbing can be seen at demonstrations as a means of protest, or during some public events, such as street parades or public appearances, where people often climb signposts and other small structures.
