    - Saltley Gas Holders -

    Approximately 160 ft high.

    Been wanting to climb these massive metal structures for a long time, very excited on the day, when I got through the perimeter; walking up to the foot of them was overwhelming, knowing that I could climb them and was about to.

    Finally the day had came.

    The gas holders are very rusted/rusting now, was more of a adrenalizing rush climbing up the 8, 20 foot rusting ladders, freely and without the use of anything (like harnesses or ropes).

    Love heights and urban exploration adrenaline is amazing. (Never once felt fear here though.)

    It does/still smell(s) of gas around here.

    Almost half withered away rusted ladder rung.
    Most of the rungs were like this, trying to stand towards the edges as much as I could although they're not exactly long.
    Made sure when climbing to never put my two hands/feet on the same rung at one time just encase one broke.

    The view's a lot better at night I think.
