This video shows Flaviu Cernescu “free solo” climbing the second tallest structure in Romania
The Chimney at CET Pitesti SUD (280m) !
Notes from Flaviu Cernescu
The chimney has six floors. The first 5 don’t have a railing anymore and are very deteriorated so I split the climb in 4 sections, by altitude:
- 0m – 20m there is no metal ladder but only some electrical cables hanging…
- 21m – 55m the ladder does to have protective cage.
- 55m – 275m the ladder has protective cage but no place to sit down.
- 25m – 280m (top) the ladder, again, has no protective cage and then last 3 meters of it are not secured to the tower which makes it unstable.
Please understand that by climbing this chimney you put yourself/others in danger.
Don’t try it unless you really know what you are doing!!
Take care and enjoy life!
