The Olympic Games may be over for another year, but Steve can still catch all the action of the opening ceremonies while bearing his own torch up these sky reaching stairs and light the ever burning Olympic Flame!

Welcome to this grand ascent into the very halls of Mount Olympus, the final leg of the journey for every great Olympian. As you climb the flowing stairs, gaze about at the immense architecture nestled amongst the grand white and silver clouds. Take solitude and refuge in the many lush and sheltered Gardens quietly hidden along your route, and bask in the warm Glowing Wild Fruits hanging from the great branches of untamed trees.

This great spire is a tribute to the great Olympic Games and at the very summit is a Giant Golden Torch which bares the Olympic Flame high above the floating islands. Come take the Challenge and climb this angelic steps to the very heights of the heavens themselves.

This is a series of free floating staircases reaching from the humble base of the main island all the way to a giant torc at the very limit of the world itself. The ancient architecture floating among the clouds and the spiral stiarcase has been crafted almost entirely using materials that can only be found in update 1.3 and beyond. The Sandstone Stair blocks and Jungle Wood Slabs give this build it's originality, style, and a unique look that can only be found in the later version of minecraft.

Last Steps and Finishing Touches : 08/24/2012 4:07:20 amAug 24th, 2012

I am up late tonight working on these last few touches. My wife is here helping me decide on the best screen shots while the epic fly by video is rendering.

I really hope everyone can enjoy all the time and effort I have put into this crazy project.

Thank you very much, :-)
I had originally wanted to reach all of the islands but your right it does look a bit like it is just sprawled all over the place. If I could do it over I might have made a single central tower with the other paths branching out like tree limbs.
