    So, with the development featuring 18.5m/20.9m/26.7m/74.9m high erections, there's two remotely operated (cabless) tower cranes on site.

    One is about 20 m, and the taller is 30, which was the target for a recce with Alley on Sun night, before returning on Monday night with Over & Nckt.

    First off, three from Alley,


    Then far too many from both nights from me. You'll have to excuse the bad quality, I upped the ISO to 1600 in lieu of tripod, and you can really tell.

    Then onto Monday night, Me, Sam & Nckt. Getting Nckt used to ropes more than anything else.

    when I stopped.

    The night ended abruptly with the arrival of a couple of people clad in black, with radios. Their advice?

    Conversation went along the lines of:

    "isn't that a bit dangerous?"

    -lifts hoodie up "harnesses mate"


    "experienced climbers, spent years as a steel erector, got more equipment here than they would have workin up there"

    "........next time, make sure you don't get seen"

    Quality :D
