    Hello. This is my first ever post!

    Short Introduction;
    Having spent years trying to climb buildings in Cardiff, I was unsuccessful and gave up for 2 years ago. 6 months ago, I began my third and final year in university and therefore met a friend of a friend (JD) who took me to small rooftops in Cardiff Town Centre. We ended up on the Cardiff Market Roof a number of times. JD then left Cardiff and went back to university in England. My roof topping days were over for the time being. In January this year, I watched James Kingston's documentary 'Don't Look Down' and it changed my view on my surrounding environment and the way I thought about things. I soon realised that, by sticking to rooftops, I was limiting my horizons.. quite literally!

    2 months ago, I began solo-free-climbing cranes and construction buildings to fuel my passion. The video for my first crane climb is attached.[video=youtube;9nrKyvQOnHA]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9nrKyvQOnHA[/video]

    Below are photographs from the cranes and the buildings I have climbed up. There will be more posts from me. They're all from Cardiff but I am currently planning a trip to London with a few friends to go roof topping and crane climbing. If anyone knows any places to go or people who we could meet up with, please don't hesitate to let me know.

    As I'm studying Film Production in university, and am learning photography as self-directed learning; I am documenting every climb through my camera, producing photos and short films.

    No pics showing, Henry. You might need to re-do the link.
