It’s been nearly three years since I first tried the Ren. To be precise 1080 days ago. 2 years, 11 months, 15 days. We were keen to try every roof we could see in Manchester.
Myself, Appo & Rookie shot towards the heavens in the lift, one of our first ‘live’ hotel explores but sadly we came back down shortly afterwards without any rooftop photographs.
154 weeks on and I stand on top of the Ren, I can see all of the other rooftops that we have explored in the past.
Back to more recent events. After jumping in the cars with Morse, MD, Sub & Nick we headed over to Packin’ Heat.
Originally explored in 2008 this one doesn’t have the same air to it as the CSO walks and culverted rivers dotted across the city. By no means does this make things easy as there is less travelling involved, access is very blatant and you hope that some bored taxi driver doesn’t ring you in.
