A man calling himself the "Pro-life Spiderman" has climbed the tallest building in downtown Phoenix ahead of a major weekend in the city. The climber, named Maison DesChamps, has previously free-soloed buildings across the country, including Detroit, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
The Climb - La Salita
"Extremely dangerous. There's multiple places all over the Valley where you can go over and climb in a controlled environment, this is an uncontrolled environment. This is not what you're supposed to do," said Captain Todd Keller.

Relatively short but interesting climb. This could be a diversion to take before continuing on to the inner lake tour or before ascending the more famous "Nesso".Possibility of refreshments at the finish, in the village. There are no fountains along the climbVideo of the ascent Kinomap :
Four pitches of good ice lead to the crux of the climb, another two difficult and tiring pitches. They then climbed the obvious 200m couloir and as darkness set it they climbed away from the main difficulties. After some exposed snow slopes they reached their highpoint at 03:00 am, slightly above and to the south of the Col of Hope, 12 hours behind schedule and 26 hours after having set off.
Cerro Adela Sur and Cerro Adela Central were climbed for the first time in 1958 by the Italians Walter Bonatti and Carlo Mauri, a few days after their failed attempt up the West Face of Cerro Torre which, in 1974, would then become the famous Via dei Ragni. In 1988 the Argentines Eduardo Brenner and Silvia Fitzpatrick carried out the first ascent of Cerro Adela Nord.
In January, Greg Boswell made the first ascent of Bring da Ruckus at Lochnagar, Scotland. He graded it XII 13, which is the most severe grade any climb in Scotland has ever been assigned making it the hardest two-pitch winter route in the country.
On Feb. 22, strong Polish climber Filip Babicz made the second ascent of Bring Da Ruckus. He first attempted it ground-up and then opted to inspect it top-down before leading it and placing all of the gear. Babicz has repeated hard highballs, E9 routes, set alpine speed records and competes in the World Cup events.
Alesund is a port town right at the edge of one of the most famous fjords in Norway, Geirangerfjorden (I will have a separate post dedicated to our visit to that fjord!). A lot of visitors will stay in this quaint town as a starting point for exploring hikes in the surrounding mountains, fjords like Geirangerfjorden, and local festivals.One of my favorite parts of a fjords cruise is to wake up every morning to approaching land and houses from our next destination. I highly recommend getting an ocean view room if possible for a cruise like this. It makes so much of a difference because the views out the window are really stunning (plus the rooms are less stuffy since you can open the windows and let in fresh air!).I think I took all these photos from our cruise ship balcony. So pretty, so serene, and so magical.Alesund is cute and quite walkable. We explored the path along a canal and enjoyed looking at the colorful houses that lined the way.One of the most popular quick "hikes" to do at Alesund is to climb the 418 stairs to the Fjellstua Viewpoint on Aksla Mountain. If you don't want to do the climb, you can also take a car or purchase tickets to any number of hop-on-hop-off tour buses that go up there. There's a small cafe at the top that sells coffee, snacks, and other drinks. Enjoy a cold beer or a cappuccino while taking in the impressive views.The panorama views are incredible. You can see the entire city as well as surrounding mountains and other islands. It's really breathtaking.There's the canal we were walking on earlier!Hello Alesund!After climbing the 418 steps, we met Bryan's parents at the top (they took the bus). We then all descended it together.We also visited the Sunnmoere Museum, an open-air museum with 55 historic Norwegian houses as well as a nice collection of Viking ships (very cool). It's a great place to visit if you feel like walking, since the historic houses all sit along a large lake. I loved the cool grass-covered rooftops! One of the nicest surprises of the trip was a rainbow sighting in the late afternoon. It had been raining on and off most of the day (though that did not deter us from any of the outdoor activities!). It was so special to see the sun finally come out plus this gorgeous rainbow.The rainbow's existence was fleeting and short. Soon, I was left with just a view of the patrol boat and a large cruise ship.
An enormous staircase, the Salita Saraceni, winds up through three tiers of city walls in a 30- to 45-minute climb to the summit of La Rocca. From here you have wonderful views of the town below. There are two main access points, both marked by signs for 'Tempio di Diana': take Vicolo Saraceni off Corso Ruggero, or Via Giuseppe Fiore, just to the right (south) of the Banco di Sicilia on Piazza Garibaldi.
The soil aims to build the new landscape of the climb, a 2.0 flower show, replacing the sadness of bitumen with an explosion of colors and paths, which visitors and inhabitants can walk freely: we have seen children and teenagers running along the zigzag of the new design. 041b061a72
