In reply to leehawkins: It would be a shame to either snap bits off or leave chalk/rubber marks on it. Arent there and structures with rough hewn masonry blocks to climb on that cant be possibly harmed ?

In reply to muppetfilter: ive looked at it and it seems solid. i know what you mean about breaking pieces off and thats the last thing id want. ive been so curious weather it could be climbed. i havnt realy seen anywhere else unless someone here knows of any

What on earth is it? It looks light it might be some sort of war memorial in which case I would not go near it with my stickies on...

Go for it,

Very unlikely the local law will be too worried!
Check the top out for broken glass and the like first.

BUT!
- do check if it's a memorial first though.
If not I'm sure there are lots of other places to builder.

Looks interesting! I wouldn't climb it if it was a memorial though.

Let us know if you find out what it is, and what grade ;)

There's an old railway bridge in Trehafod that used to be popular.

In reply to leehawkins:

That looks like a memorial beside a busy road. Neither of those two things are good.

There's plenty of good urban climbing but you do need to be sensible about what you climb and when.
