Hi guys,
Last Saturday after hearing about this abandoned gas tower/holder or whatever you want to call it in London, Canada waters, I decided to give it a go.
It was around 10 minutes from the station and very easy to get into, it was much higher than other gas towers in London that I have done and was very easy to climb as there was a ladder with platforms going all the way up.

The view was incredible. I was able to see the central business district of London to one side and to the other side I could see right across the Thames through to the Shard and the other main buildings in London. I climbed it as the sun was rising which added to the magic as I saw the sun rise over and light up the entire city. I made a little video of the climb where you can see how beautiful the sunrise and view is. Likewise in the video, I did something a little bit extra than attended and quite dangerous, so let me know what you think and I recommend anyone to go and do this climb themselves.

Regards,
Clouds Edge.

Not really what to say tbh mate. It's a good video, I watched it all the way through, but I don't really "get" the idea that you have to risk your life like that. Also it's not really UE in the purest sense. But you know, you gotta do what ya gotta do. It's just that I wouldn't want my children doing anything like that.

It's all about getting views n subscriptions innit. Hardly exploring is it, more of a balancing act. Not saying I could do it but I don't see how it fits in here personally.

I don't really like videos that are about the people exploring more than the place they're exploring, so I guess I was never going to like this. But it kinda reminds me of the stupid things I did as a kid and now think to myself, "It's pretty fucking amazing I'm not dead".

It does make me happy the internet wasn't about when I was a kid though :thumb

Also, I think this probably belongs in the video section since it's not a report. Could be wrong though.

It would have been cracking to see some nicely composed snaps overlooking London from up there at blue hour.

Have to admit you have some balls walking on the top of that but feel its an unnecessary risk. We have recently had an explorer fall through a roof in Leeds. Please take more care.
A few photos and the history would have made this a report.
Take care Myke
