This morning the builders of BRC all came together to raise the Man into place, hundreds of people pulling as one on a 300' rope — the first time the Man has been raised this way in nearly 20 years. #RadicalRitual #BurningMan #BM2017 #ManKCrew #DPW #DPW2017 #ManKCrew2017 #BurningMan2017 #TempleofTheGoldenSpike #Manlift

On big lift days—or “picks”—the Heavy Equipment crew all offer their best guess as to the dead weight of the structure to be lifted. Whoever comes the closest gets bragging rights. Today it was a tie between Bruiser and Sheepshank. Who, as HEaT’s Crane Manager and Lead Rigger respectively, should know. What an amazing skill, to be able to eyeball a massive structure and come within 500 pounds of guessing its actual weight. #HEaT #DPW #BM2017 #BurningMan #BurningMan2017 #DPW #DPW2017 #HEaT2017 #TempleofTheGoldenSpike

Today HEaT (the DPW Heavy Equipment and Transpo crew) used a 240 ton crane to lift 46,000 pounds of roof into place 44' in the air atop the Temple of The Golden Spike — the 2017 Man Pavilion. #BM2017 #TempleofTheGoldenSpike #DPW #HEaT #BurningMan #BRC #BurningMan2017 #HEaT2017 #crane #liftday #ManBase #ManPavilion #ManKCrew #ManKCrew2017 #DPW2017 #engineering #architecture #desert

Exterior and interior views of one of eight massive, custom-built columns for the 2017 Man Pavilion, The Temple of The Golden Spike. With their hollow cores, these should burn spectacularly. #BM2017 #BurningMan #DPW #DPW2017 #ManKCrew #ManKCrew2017 #TempleOfTheGoldenSpike #latergram
