Visited with Bubblehead and God.

We headed down to London on a mini-adventure, meeting up with friends old and new for some afternoon drinks and discussions before everyone disembarked in different directions to do epic shit.

Our list was reasonably small, as we only really headed down with tourist attractions in mind. This was number 2 on the list, and it's undoubtedly the most exhilarating, and cold, place I have ever been.

It's a bit hard to describe just how many stairs are involved in a building over 600 feet tall, with 47 floors. But it's alot, with the top wedge of floors still housing temporary scaffolding staircases, leading up to unfinished floors which really don't feel too stable when you have gale force-like winds hitting you from all directions.

As they're a big part of the building I thought I'd start with some shots of the stairs.


Anti-death net. It worked.


The top plant floors.







Massive shout out to all who conquered it in the past, and those we spoke to regarding it on the day.​
