Visited with Kevin Arnold.

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 :
240 Blackfriars Road is a 236,300 sq ft 19-storey office development designed by award winning architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris. Media and publishing company UBM has taken 105,000 sq ft pre-let to function as its UK headquarters when the building completes in 2014. Architectural style - futurist, roof heigh 89m.
