    160m of 93 year old rusting Soviet steelwork.

    I’d have told my news editor to jog off.

    Yep – my logic would be that if it is survived a Russian winter it will survive my ascent.

    Its Made by the soviets, I’d be happier at the top of that than the top of a new build.

    My thoughts too.

    Harry, clearly you’re getting soft. Get your arse up there son. We want pix after.

    I like the bit where there were holes the size of a fist and the wobbly walkway.

    Not for me thanks.

    I’m disappointed it has a lift, thought the BBC chap would have to climb 160m worth of ladders!

    It’s a hugely important piece of architecture/ engineering, elements of it are being used today in tower design. To demolish it to allow a no doubt hideous new tower would be a travesty.
