    Over hasn't been given full status yet, so I'll quote his text, as it's far better than I could have done, and he was the one that made the first ascent.

    Big reps to Over for that, much respect.

    Now from me.
    I've always looked at the banding on brick chimneys and thought it would be fun to climb up them. Then Stoka found reference to a site near here that was derelict, and it had a brick chimney. So me and stoka went and had a look at the site, spotted security with dogs doing their rounds from the rooftop, but still went back. Got to the bottom of the chimney and kitted up. I started the ascent, and quickly realised it was beyond me., so Over took the lead and went up like a rabbit up something a rabbit runs up real quick. Just one stop to give his hands a rest, and he was ontop. Then it was my turn. Rather than climbing up the banding like I'd intended, i' srt'd up the rope that Over had fastened to the top. It was still a ball ache though. lol.

    About two thirds up we noticed that the workers from pilkingtons had come out and were watching us, but that was ok, cos the two security guards didn't pay us any attention :D

    Anyway, on with the pics.
