    At about 5am on the way back from Bradford, Gone suggested that we go and have a look at a tower crane in Salford. Myself, Millhouse and Sho agreed.
    The site is just off Trinity way in Salford and houses a large, cab-less, tower crane.
    After half an hour of sneaking around the site, and making the decision whether we step over onto the frame of the crane, 40 ft above ground or go to the bottom and risk bumping into security, we opted to step across.
    The first to go, I stepped across. Spread-eagled, 40 ft above ground, One foot on the crane's frame, the other on a scaffolding pole is an odd experience, it's scary, exciting and a bit surreal all at the same time. If I were to go in to work and relay the story, i'm sure people would be rather baffled and question my mental health, but to an explorer, it's just another night, another explore.

    I'm not quite sure on the height of this crane, but i'll find out and add it to this post.
