Comments: This tower is in okay condition for its obvious lack of maintenance. Trees are grown up around the legs of the tower, the lower portion of which is encased in vines. The lower stairs have been removed. Every step and landings is grated steel, not wood. It appears that everything on the tower is fine, however.
