Is there a point that you just have to say "there's no way in" without breaking in? Or do you just have to look harder?

Keep looking, you might be surprised, though this obviously depends on the location. You might be able to social engineer your way into an active location without "breaking in". Almost every abandoned place i've been to I've gotten in, but there are some that I deem "impossible" because of the level of security.

Patience will always yield positive results.

Went to the hospital once and drove around it.. deemed it impossible for the time being. Drove to the location and walked around at a casual pace to find many hidden entrances. An air conditioner with no bottom is one that comes to mind. One fence even proved to be hung, rather than attached.

Things like this are what a more experienced explorer will tend to pick out. Remember.. just because it looks boarded up, doesn't mean it is. =]

Yes. But then you just wait for someone else to do the breaking in for you. There's enough out there besides explorers that want in any given building, that eventually it will happen.

Patience. Just wait. Look for subtle changes, and then make your way in

Without this getting into an ethics debate, define breaking in. Actually, don't. Just do that as a mental exercise. Please don't post your results.

But practically, there may well be a point for a site where without engaging in some "creative entrance finding" you won't get in. But, you can be genuinely creative in finding an entrance! Look and see if there's a way you can climb the building, at least to a second story. Or climb to the roof. (This is assuming you have the climbing skill to do so.)

Climbing skills definitely make it easier. And more fun. Especially when there are easier ground level entrances, or a hole in the fence.

Anything reversible doesn't count... so there's always a way in (Especially with lock picks). It just depends how much time+effort you're willing to put into it / how big a risk you are willing to take.

if you really want in, and have the means and time, you can get in.

but it might violate various criminal laws.

If I cant find a way in that doesnt involve doing damage that I cant undo, I wont enter. In some cases I have come back to find a door unlocked or a window busted out. From my experience, the larger the building, the more chances there are of finding a way in. Its real hard to completely seal up a large building...

Out of the hundreds of buildings I've gotten into, I think there have only been about 5 or 6 that were "Fiend proof", short of using a grapling hook, which I will use one of these days.

I usually get creative and find an entrance. Climbing never fails. Thats how i usually get in most of my locations that are supposedly sealed up. Or use objects around you to help you get higher if you cant climb. Usually places arent sealed above the 2nd floor. Some are, but majority are just sealed on the first floor and maybe the 2nd floor but not always.

For example me and fiend climbed in a building through a 3rd story window on a like 12 or 13 floor building, and it didn't even require a grappling hook! There's usually a way in, or there will be eventually.

I'm with Fiend on this one, if there is no way in without doing damage, don't go in. Let someone else fuck it up... then go in.

Also I've noticed, especially around Dallas, a lot of buildings that are boarded up have bottom floor entrances higher than 8 ft (size of plywood) most people won't drop the extra cash to go the rest of the way up with another piece of plywood, I guess they figure I, I mean someone, won't just climb up the plywood and go over the top...

No place is deemed impossible.
No way in, Make one.
