Are these Chicago’s tallest fire escapes?

The 24-story Lawson YMCA on Chicago Ave is 262 feet high at the roof line, according to the Emporis database.

The three exterior fire escapes on the north side of the building are the tallest I can recall seeing in Chicago.

Are there any taller ones in Chicago, or were there at one time?
