i mean it was built in 1894 so i guess a few have been up to the top huh? i don't mean if you work for the city - don't folks do a urban commando thing were they investigate areas that are closed to the public? So fess up old timers, who has been to the top?

My dad worked for PG&E for years and went all sorts of places. I'll ask if he or any of his cronies have been to the top.

I climbed up to the top where the balcony like thing goes around it. This was back in the 60's when I think you still could. Never went all the way to the very top however. I did get to climb to the top of the Security building and go out to where the sign was. Very scary!!

Do you recall the water tower on Clinton near Blackstone. I friend of mine climbed it and spray painted his name (Wild Bill) on it.

My dad was one of the architect's that did the plans for the remodel for the visitors center. When we went in to take measurements, the inside was cleaned out. We did get to climb up the ladder into the tank and go out on the balcony around the outside.
