      • [*] Temenos - The Greek word meaning sacred place or domain set aside for kings, or a marked
        piece of land dedicated to a deity. Sanctuary or holy ground.

    Designed by international artist Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond one of the worlds leading
    structural engineers. The first of five enormous art installations to be erected around the
    Tees Valley communities costing 2.7 million and standing 48m tall in the Middlesbrough Middle-haven
    dockyard.

    It was presented to the people of Middlesbrough on 10th June 2010 by Steve Gibson chairman of
    Middlesbrough football club and part funder, in the presence of elected Mayor Ray Mallon.



    Since I first layed eyes on this enormous looking femmydom I knew I had to climb it. After taking
    several trips to the site to figure out how it would be done, I settled on a plan in mind and
    waited for the right night to do it. On a clear calm night Forsaken and I headed down to Middle-haven
    in the early hours. Forsaken was to take the photos whilst I was to climb the structure only
    Balfour Beatty had climbed before during the construction. Sticking to the plan I was soon up and making
    my way into the middle of the wire mesh. Some 20 - 30 minuets later we could sigh relief as the task
    was over and without any problems. Driving away with beaming smiles - mission complete.

    Massive Thanks to Forsaken for his help and taking his night off to photograph the climb.
    Couldn't of done it without ya.

    I of course got no photos of the climb but here are some of mine, so enough talk,

    As stated, 'Solomon' climbed, I took photographs from the ground. Well done to 'Solomon' for getting it done. Here's the photographs:

    Great collection of pics there.

    They now sadly have so much more meaning.
