Tower Climb v4.01

Postby yippee5000 » Mon Sep 22, 2014 4:07 pm

Well there may not be an achievements list this year, but I figure on keeping up the tradition of the Shinra Tower Climb for 2014 anyways. Any other crazies out there :roll:

I'm just keeping you waiting, and the stairs are back again.

I just don't know if you want it bad enough.

I think there's only like what about a half dozen of us whom can say that we have done the crazy of doing the 'Shinra Tower Climb" and for a few of us, more then once, and the sad part, many of those who have done it ain't no spring chickens...:P

So come and join us you youngins...I mean if a couple of 20 and 30 somethings and at least one 50+ person can climb the tower and back down at least once completely without dying, pretty sure some of ye spry under 20's can do it... I mean some of you lot carry what 60 lbs of books around school/collage all day and probably gotta take some stairs to boot here and there... :P

And trust me, we pace ourselves... make a rest point at about every 10 flights or so (where we also take a couple pics to document the climb)....then a nice hearty rest at the top (last year we ate cookies and drank up some water and juice)., before the descent back down (which is easier then going up). Some of use will usually also go hit up the food court for a meal afterwards....:)

I did it in heels one time. I arrived late to the meet up time, and hurried to make up lost time. I apparently took the second stairway, and when I neared the top floors of the hotel without finding people (no echos either), I went out of the stairs and around to the other on a random hotel floor. I caught up to the couple others doing the climb and finished it together. In heels, I repeat, in heels. We climbed back down as well if I remember right, at least part way. It was much easier than I thought it would be, but im more out of shape now. But im still up for it, even if I go solo.
