If you are afraid of heights, then you'll love this

Recommended Posts

First off, let me say "Holy cripes! That's high!"

 

...I wonder what kind of shape you need to be in just to be able to physically make that climb? I've climbed 80 foot tall silos on the farm growing up, and that could wear you out a bit, but this tower? Yikes!

(I don't have a fear of heights.... I have a "cautious respect" for them.. But I'd never climb up on that tower!)

Hell would freeze over before you would get me up there even up as far as the lift goes

I hate heights.  My heart was racing watching it.  I can't believe they free climb that.

Holy crap!

I've worked at the top of 30 meter towers (see below) which had a little stomach effect but watching this video my nuts were trying to hide!

I could not do this tower, NO SIR!

 

I notice these guys doing a free climb and hooking in their safety harness in a very unsafe position. Nuts!

I talked to a guy who has a friend that does it, and he says they do have a small parachute should something happen.  For me, that video alone is scary.  My hands would be shaking too much from fear of imminent death, forget the exhaustion factor.  :lol

I've seen this video before but never watched it. I can't I watched a minute, skipped ahead, watched another minute, skipped to the end. I can't even watch the whole thing. Forget climbing it.
