Climbing Up

Another entry in this week theme Up, looking up from the Brighouse canal to the climbing wall fixed on an old flour mill, a climb not for the faint-hearted.
Oh my goodness! I am definitely faint hearted. Did you need to stand far away to get all in the shot?

Wow, that never used to be there. Thankfully! My parents were both rock climbers and I remember being stuck on the climbing wall at Huddersfield sports centre, refusing to move.

@quietpurplehaze Thank you Hazel it is very high would not have got it all in standing closer:)

Wow! That looks like a mighty tall climb. I think I would opt not to climb it.

@henrir Thank you Henri, I used to work at height's much higher than this, but I would not wish to free climb this one:)

@yorkshirekiwi Thank you for your comment Carole, there's an indoor climbing area that's been in use six years, this outdoor one was only installed this time last year, its 140 feet to the highest part and there are 25 routes to the top:)

Crikey, you mean some people are brave enough or daft enough to climb this.

Goodness, gives me vertigo to look at it. I did some rock climbing in my youth, but I could never cope with such a sheer face. Great entry for the 'up' theme

Holy cow, they use that as climbing wall!?!? For sure it is not for the faint of heart! Nice application of the up theme. I like the little splash of red too - were you going for the February theme? ;)

@stray_shooter Thank you for your comment Ron, I used to work at height and when I was a young engineer found heights a challenge until an old engineer explained "falling from anything over 30 feet has the same outcome" very reassuring, lol:)
