The looming concrete exterior that frames the Walters Art Museum contrasts grimly with the delicate Monets and other impressionist art displayed inside. No one would call this bleak surface art. But today, an artist and an athlete are planning to stage an adventurous and ephemeral piece of action on that stark wall with the aim of turning the museum in Baltimore's Mount Vernon neighborhood inside out. The Centre Street museum's facade has been transformed into a rock-climbing surface with orange grips molded from some of the museum's artifacts.

Rock climbing has little to do with strength and everything to do with technique.Seventeen-year-old Nicholas Britz, of Laurel, is banking on that to turn a self-developed computer program into a big marketing hit. The Hammond High School senior's project employs complex math and scientific theories to show rock climbers how to position themselves more efficiently as they ascend cliffs.In essence, he's trying to turn the potentially dangerous, rugged and highly individualistic sport of rock climbing into a precise biomechanical science based on an analysis of the changes in torque, center of gravity, mass and force generated by climbers' bodies during ascents.

The hot sun reflected off her neon green shoestrings yesterday as Amy Bria held her rope securely and stepped gingerly down a rock crevice.First one foot and then the other as Bria, a 32-year-old accountant from Lansdowne, slowly descended the steep cliff while friend Ronald W.

Adam White Adam White, 25, is among those missing in the collapse of the World Trade Center. An employee of the bond trading firm Cantor Fitzgerald, he worked on the 106th floor of the north tower - a perch his mother thought was far too high. "It looked like a precarious place to be," said White's mother, Melissa Turnage of Cockeysville. "I wondered how he would get out if anything happened." White went to Dulaney High School from 1988 to 1989, where he was in the school's drama club and played the doctor in a production of "Death of a Salesman."
