theres usually a landing every 10 feet or so, if you do fall it won't be very far

90% of the things you'll learn about exploring, you will learn by doing.

I heard on some cranes they actually run the power for operating the crane through the structure itself cos they're metal and metal conducts right? If you wear rubber shoes you'll be okay!

But... I thought it'd be best to climb the crane barefoot after dipping my feet in a salt water solution for better grip! This wont do at all!

You're doing it wrong.

I work with all types of cranes. Climb away. Here in the BayArea we even have the fuck'n scrappers stripping shit off our cranes. Do to those assholes you will start see'n more & more security around them. Do em while you can.

The question is not when are we gonna stop, It's who's gonna stop us?

I wore this the first time i climbed a crane.



Just go climb it, watch out for security and use some common sense (irony ftw!).

You are pretty much screwed if security spots you... all they really got to do is wait for you to come down.

Nope. I never UE'd in Bellevue. Mostly because it's the pablum of suburbs. Of course, getting stopped on two different occasions by Bellevue's Finest for the dastardly crime of walking down a street did make me a bit skittish about actually doing something against the law there.

Careful, I lived in Bellevue all the way up until I went to college... they're ALWAYS looking for something to do. Crime rate is so low that they conduct random Terry-stops just for fun... it seems. They'll shit themselves if they hear of somebody climbing up a crane.

So, that said, just make sure that you do it carefully (duh) =D

I've always been uneasy about crane climbing, seems way too high profile. There are a lot of really tempting ones in Portland though.
