    2. All that weight is put on 4 concrete block houses with iron door.

    3. Looking up from the middle makes it look endless.

    12. Things get more difficult the ladders become much longer some 30 meters or more.

    14. Normally u do things like this with safety harness around this tube. But of course that was not an option today.

    [​IMG]
    14. at some point it got a lot more windy and some ladders were attached with ropes and shaked a lot more then the lower ones.

    [​IMG]
    15. I started the climb actually very late and I only had 30 min left before it would get dark. Ofcourse I didn’t had any light with me and to make it more interesting fog was starting to come and rain started from a distance.

    16. That little dot still my car

    [​IMG]
    17.Oh no rain/fog time too hurry

    [​IMG]

    20. Finally I reached the top at 186 meters. Just on time before the rain reached me. I took a few pictures and then as quickly as I could back down.

    22. When they put the lights on?

    24. Going back down went a lot faster then going up. But still theres more danger in going down then up. After a while u want too rush and your arms start to hurt or your hands. Thats when u have to be the most concentrated because it doesn’t take much to grab wrong.

    That was an amazing climb. I normally deal with lighthouses and 48 metres is about top-of-the-range!

    Very well done and a fantastic climb and photos.

    My appreciation to you
