Night Climbers of Cambridge

I recently read this new edition of the 70 year old: "Night Climbers of Cambridge". A very cool book if you are into climbing. The book tells a story of the first urban explorers in the UK. Famous climbs documented in the book are the ascent of King's College and St. John's' College chapels and the "Senate House leap", together with many photographic plates.

check: Night Climbers of Cambridge

Very cool, The guy standing on that pinnacle (picture) is 90 now. He was sent down from the University for climbing King's
Chapel with an effigy of George VI in 1937! Crazy stuff these guys did.

The pictures, many from the original negatives have been remastered and
look spectacular.

awesome. maybe that's how the pumpkin got up the cornell clock tower several years ago. it's been a mystery since it appeared there.


edit: nevermind. this article states how it was done:
