It's so different that it probably wouldn't make sense to have it on this site. There's not much to talk about with bouldering either... progression is much more obvious and there are tons of established training methods that you can just google.
Power, balance, freedom.

buildering..
..bouldering..
..buidering?

What are we talking about here? I'm assuming you mean buildering? Just googled it, looks interesting. I don't think it really needs it own section around here.. a single thread would probably be fine.

I second the motion.
So long as I have parkour I'm okay.

I'd say start it as a thread and see how it goes. I may consider putting a buildering forum up, but I'd rather just refer you to my friend's site www.buildering.net. It is hard to say where to draw the line, but really APK is about Parkour and Freerunning, we could add a board for tricking, one for bboying, one for buildering, one for rock climbing - all things that people who like parkour are likely to like, but frankly I'd rather just have people who like those things discuss them in relation to parkour and freerunning in the course of the existing forums.
