Seeing that this place is gearing up to open in the next few months, thought I'd have a look through the archives. 👀

And another from the same iconic place, this time featuring the infamous girder ladder.

You used the vertical girders as ladders?!!

Where that photo was taken is about two floors up already, off the edge to the right is just a drop amongst a mesh of girders.

The ladder you see on the right of the photo, precariously balanced on a girder, resting against another girder, leans out over the drop. It's a very tight squeeze at the top of the ladder between two girders to make it up to the top, definitely no room to have a backpack on.

The only thing stopping the ladder from sliding off the girder it was resting on was the rounded rivets.

It was only way up the Control Room A for a long time.

Once up at the Control Room level, you could get up to the roof by climbing the girders though. Here's a photo of me just reaching the top:

And a closer up photo of the ladder:

Thanks a lot. Perhaps a few bungee straps should be part of any explorer's kit - to secure ladders in place, for example. Very hairy drops!
