5 Cheapside, London - 2013-14

I actually made three trips to this crane, the first two being two nights on the bounce in December 2013, and the third in April. On the way home after my first trip, I noticed my toy pig 'Sausage' (see here) was no longer in my bag, and realised that it must have been at the top of the crane. I returned the next evening, and much earlier, in search of Sausage. Given the high winds, I didn't expect the pig to survive at the top. I spent about ten minutes hunting around, but couldn't see it. Dejected, I started to make my way down. Just as my head was about to go through the hatch, voila! I spotted Sausage balanced right on the edge of the platform. It was a close shave, but he lives to this day.
