the only way is up

Found this urban climber at Karlberg Station, honing his skills to climb on the closest thing to a mountain that the city itself provides - a huge wall, supporting Rörstrandsgatan above.

And in the end he was happy: I've climbed a wall! Hills, mountains, rocks... but a wall sounds desperate!
But I think I would give it a try.

I guess that's an OK place to practice...wonder where he'll go from there?

Nice capture!

Looks like the ultimate urban climbing parkour. (; What's on the other side?

Jacob: I didn't stay around long enough to see whether he actually climbed down again, or was satisfied with his accomplishment and took the easier way down - the street above.

Thanks for comments.
