Superficially, a cliff is a great idea! You may remember having to scale a rock wall in high school – only a few of those healthy, living kids could get to the top while the out of shape just sat and watched. Climbing a cliff is way different, and sometimes nowhere to even grab onto. If the fatties said no way to a rock wall in high school, then you know what the zombies are thinking!
With a cliff you can use a pulley system to get yourself up and down and get supplies. However, that means climbing with all of those pulleys and rope systems. I don’t know about you, but I was one of those fatties and there is no way I’m going to climb with pulleys and ropes. To each their own, though.
Buildings have stairways that hordes of zombies can fill up and go nowhere in. This creates a perfect opportunity to drill a murder hole, like in a castle, and just mow every zombie down. However, one could still be alive while it’s lying on the ground and bite you on the ankle.
Cliffs are exposed to the elements, and unless you pull some building supplies up before some zombies get to you your toast. The sun will burn you, all of your water will evaporate, and you might get blown off by a freak gust of wind – same with a tall building. So in a nut shell tall buildings are dumb and cliffs are even dumber. Choose a building and die from a fire or starvation. Choose a cliff and risk an attack from a zombie eagle.
If you had to choose shelter in the zombie apocalypse what would it be and why?
