    Well it was the the first crane I climbed in London and must say that I absolutely loved it :)
    And wind... I don't know much about Beaufort wind force scale but I think it was quite high that night. On the top of the building I was fine, trying to convince myself that well, its very windy, but still not that bad. But on the top of the crane well it felt like it would blow me me away at some point.
    It was the best adventure I've ever had I must say, amazing view and mind 'blowing' experience :)


    Here is some info about the site :
