Before some of you explode...
October 17, 2008, 01:41:37 pm
...in a fit of anti-urban rage, let me explain the purpose of this forum.

Caedmon Mullin was running a London buildering website, which was to do with a certain competition and dvd. That project is now dead but he wanted somewhere to direct any people still keen on the idea.

I thought "well why not"? It can't really hurt anyone and it might even get some brick-pullers into real bouldering.

Perhaps a position of less prominence might be a bit more discreet? I'm open to offers.

tbh I can't really see this getting any traffic in which case I'll remove it later....but in the meantime just ignore it and try not to burst a vein :)

Thanks for putting the forum on... "Other Shizzle" is fine with me!

Not sure the project is dead exactly! Planning another comp for next year, but didn't get around to it this summer... and winter's only really for the hard-core builderer... and I'm not sure they really exist!

If I lived somewhere without rocks to climb or indoor walls id call it a day and find another hobby!
Its like cycling when you live in the arctic!

I personally think buildering is best enjoyed at night after at least 7 pints, preferably on holiday abroad and in an attempt to impress girls on a hotel balcony some way above you.

Or off your face without a t shirt at 7 AM outside the gay bar. Isn't that right Mr Clifton if you're reading this ;)
