    So ive been trying out this rooftopping thing with a friend.. i thought it was a very crazy n stupid idea at first.. but she convinced me n we were very safe about it :S

    my first experiences with it was amazing climbing Aura downtown Toronto. As well as at another building we even bumped into two other rooftoppers n made friends with them..

    anyone else into rooftopping? I think some people go a little too far and foolishly put their lives at risk for a picture.. what r ur thoughts on this "rooftopping" craze?

    There are no high building in my country so no, I don't. I wouldn't do it this way however I'd go up because of the sight but that's it. Or basejumping icon_redface.gif

    Seems foolish and dangerous to me. I don't get why people need to go to extreme lengths like this to get a thrill.

    Just be careful, OP.

    Omg your pictures are so beautiful! I've never heard of rooftopping but now I suddenly want to do it!

    But not the extreme type of rooftopping, just overlooking the beautiful scenery.

    I mostly go rooftopping for the view.. and the thrill of getting up a building without being caught haha.

    I spent new years on the roof with a few friends overlooking the fireworks downtown Toronto.. it was amazing!! icon_smile.gif just remember to bring a sweater or something cause it can get cold up there

    I like highpointing instead. it's a lot safer (and legal). and it takes to you places of the country (and world, i guess) that you'd never even think about visiting. the goal is to reach the highest elevation in every state (or country, whatever your desire is).

    The ironic part about that is you're actually higher while flying to the destination. icon_lol.gif

    I've never heard of that before but, I would definitely do it!
    I'd probably take it a step further and do handstands up there. icon_lol.gif

    Great pics, by the way! :^]

    not if you drive and then hike up to the place itself icon_smile.gif each place has a different marker/obliesk too...it's a really neat experience.

    with anything dangerous
    develop a sense of your skills. what would make you tolerate an 80% day with success and when are you better off hanging back at 50%.

    Holy shit I wanna try that! I obsessively check for panels on top of the elevator compartment ever since seeing Mission Impossible.

    pazzy saidcrazy motherfucker. if you fall and die, can't say you ain't ask for it.
    Moe people die in auto accidents daily. I guess they were asking for it since they knew the risk and drove anyway?

    Ive never heard of it till now and I can say that I do find it appealing but I have a fear of heights like I get a sensation of being blown off the edge of a drop when there isn't even any wind so….

    I would rather climb a mountain and have a beautiful view of nature.

    The noted architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, proposed a mile-high skyscraper. I will put off rooftopping until it is built.
