No, not that........

What is the craziest place you've climbed, rappelled or bouldered?

Pretty crazy to find those BEAUTIFULL fake boulders made just for climbing here in NC at a public park.

Crazy and a God-Send.

Personally, it's a 3-way tie for 1st place...

1. Outside of a stone castle. Set up a TR on top and climbed the exterior face to the top. Nearly got arrested for that one when I was back home in Ohio on leave - had to try it though.

2. Church steeple, from inside the sanctuary. My church asked my partner and I to rappel from the steeple of the church into the sanctuary for their Youth Camp this year - what a blast.

3. Rafters of the World Arena (Ice Arena). Rappelled from the rafters of the World Arena onto the ice with the game puck during last year's military appreciation night - best rap I've ever had. (Not just because I was armed either ).

Was filming some buildering at the local University and on this traverse that works over a door. Right as I'm directly above the door one of the profs walks out and looks up at me. He just smiled, watched for a minute and walked away.

Same day my buddy was buildering up the side of the girls only dorm while I was video taping from the outside stairwell. This lady comes out and asks what exactly I'm doing, so my brilliant reply is "umm, I'm just filming something", trying to keep her attention away from my rapidly downclimbing buddy. After an icy glare she just went inside (to call the cops I later realized) and it was then that I noticed that my camera was pointed directly into some girls room window.
Almost got busted for voyeurism while climbing, I'd say that was pretty weird.

Rappelled from the middle of the Rickenbacker bridge to the water ( 110 feet )then jummared back up. Won't do it again, "honest officer I won't". Also an unnamed water tower in Ft. Lauderdale. It will stay unnamed since I want to do it again. I bouldered the atrium rock facade in my old office building to the second floor. If i had a rope and someone to belay I'd like to have tried for the whole 7 floors.

right up the outside stone fascade of my mothers chimney, she wanted her gutters cleaned and instead of doing the whole boring get ladder climb up on roof thing, i thought that the chimney would be a much better option, needless to say she has someone else clean her gutters for her now. : )

I was looking a round in the ruins of a castle somewhere in France (way out in the country side) and there were tonnes of great lines, but I didn't have any gear so I just bouldered up to what remained of the second floor and looked around up there. We had seen alot of the castles through tours, but they usually get mad when you break out your climbing shoes and start climbing.
