hi im new to this,
i climbed this antenna over a month ago now and have been up again since, expect plenty more posts from me in high stuff category.
the antenna is on top of blackford hill and has an almost uninterrupted view of the whole of edinburgh.
i had to get up at 0430 to avoid too many dog walkers, this also offered a great view of sunrise!
i climbed it with my gopro and put together a short video, please give feedback!


i also took several pictures of the climb on my iphone with a fisheye attachment:

the view over the city from the top


me after the climb

thanks for reading, please give any feedback and stay safe
