Stunning pic! This looks like a funambulation act in 600 meters. Now it's much more, as they've been working on concrete still. I'd give a lot to have the chance to get up to the cabin, but not further...

-V- was actually Skytower, not Vanhenrik. Then again, maybe Vanhenrik is actually Skytower too

Hi Cul.

Looks good man.

I see you have removed level 137. Still need to lose 41, 74, and 110.

Let me say again - this is a great evolution to your fantastic line of diagrams.
