Another record, highest Teddy ?

31/December/2009

Burj Dubai

Finally I arrived at the top and unfortunately I cant go higher in the future

I spent 6 hours inside today, special thanks for the CoxGomyl (www.coxgomyl.com ) again , Dony ,Stuart and me done a great job today , climbing inside a spire is hard job and need to concentrate a lot , only one mistake and game over!

Just 5 pics now but from tomorrow I will start to organise the pics and videos and hopefully you will see many interesting pics of the Burj Dubai.

Wow Imre, that's fantastic!

Looks like there are some fantastic pics coming up! Fury will be happy! And so are some other BD fans (like me!)

Thanks for all the contributions this year and keep 'm coming next year!

For now everyone a very happy and healthy 2010!

It's now really becoming exciting. I really hope on some good streams on the internet to follow the inauguration live.

Anyone any idea?

Yes... must be added to next Guiness Book of Records.
You should've saved "Bear Dubai" with a rope though... what a catastrophy if he'd fallen over the railing!

Agree - I rember how tough it was to carelessly climb stuff like transmitter masts by vertical ladders in youth. Wouldn't do that today - but how I'd loved to be on this trip... the award by view and emotions must be fantastic up there, a bit like having climbed Mount Everest.

Can't wait!

What's behind the metal plate on your 3rd pic? I guess it's one of the cubes on top, visible on your spire pic from 25th November'09. Doesn't look like the beacon that's supposed to be there, more like some communication attachment.

I see you've left your mark on BD Imre. And teddy doesn't even look phased at all.


Happy New Year all!!

Seeing this pic, I'm not sure if they will finish all the job in the entrance of the tower for Monday.
