Usually climbing buildings is frowned upon by police, security, the general public and your mom. MORE INFO >>>
Watch out. There is no need to climb a building in a situation where you feel like you may get caught. The more people that are caught buildering, the more people that will be on the watch for builderers. In trying to establish new routes, scout out the line of least resistance, and give a shot when you least expect to be caught. LEAVE NO TRACE, as if it were Maine's last remaining forest. The more traces, the more people will notice builderers.

The weather obviously varies by day and season as this is the entire area around Bangor. Very cold in the winter, very humid and hot in the summer.

Architecture in this area, for the most part is pretty boring and lacking creativity, also it's mostly pretty short, (i.e. no skyscrapers.)
You can access most of this buildering area from I-95. Around the exit 189. (Anything in the Old Town area is going to be further North.)
Best if done at night. Downclimb the route to get down. Start in front of the young men's christian association. Pick a flag pole and climb it. Run right and jump for an angled steel beam.

Travers across the roof towards the roof for Hannafords. ...[more]Browse More Classics in ME
