The Horn billboard -
This was my first solo billboard climb. I
did it on a cold sunday morning in January. It
was technically simple, but I was nervous, I
didn't know if I would be spotted and arrested.
The view from the top was nice. I was
practically invisible from the ground. Some
people noticed me, but no one cared.
I used a klettersteig-set (two cow-tails). You
fasten one end, climb higher, attach the other
end and loosen the lower end. That way you're
allways attached. At least in theory. At one
point I noticed that neither of my two ends were
atached. A small loss of concentration that might
have big consequences.
|This view from the top does not look very special.
The usual industrial terrain. You are looking in the
direction of the Van Brienenoord bridge. All the other
pictures failed. - Now I've started to enjoy these
strange, empty non-sites. They have a charm of their own.
||I also climbed a crane of the "De Boo"
building materials shop. The view from the operator's
cabin was slightly more interesting. I could have gone
even higher, to the top of the crane's arm.
