It was like rock/mountain routes the was a face climbs or some more covered, I had taken more covered route and near top to get there you had to pull onto face then pull yourself up.
I got frightened and then stuck.
Had fear of heights ever since even though I worked on high structures and single planks without hand rails later in the yards.
The height of slag heap was 120 feet or maybe more,adventures yes! But it was a pure eyesore, in my opinion especially as it was near the Monkton Village.It stretched to Jarrow park, and down to Baker Perkins boundary.
