General - Plymouth Uni Crane?

Had a look as I drove round the big roundabout the other week, looks like they have trapdoors in them which isn't ideal, but not a reason to rule them out...
I'd suggest waiting for some building to go up around them, makes it so much easier that way :thumb

Yeah it's always best to wait for the building to reach higher than the cage.
Some cranes have cages with a hole in the side large enough to squeeze through (not very common anymore though), and sometimes the workers will forget to lock the cage.
It's all luck really!
I have managed to climb couple cranes a day after their erection, before a cage has even been put on!
Before James Kingston began publishing his stuff, cages on cranes were very rare. Shame really although nothing wrong with a challenge!

PM me if you decide to do something, have done one small tower crane before and some high bits in Plymouth but haven't been out in a while!

I did the taller one about a month ago mate.
It's a bit of a squeeze around the trap door but certainty possible without a camera bag. (I couldn't fit mine through so I had to leave it)

I would meet up with you but I was only in Plymouth for a day when I did it and live a fair distance away.

I went up this crane a few weeks back before there was two of them and managed to squeeze between the cage and the diagonal crane beam, I literally walked into the site and went straight up nobody seemed to be watching it.

Let me know if you fancy another shoot up there some time.
