I have seen this video, and being a person that is terrified of heights, just watching filled me with a wide array of emotion and feeling and almost made me sick. lol thanks for bringing it back

I remember watching this not too long ago. Gave me shivers up my spine just watching.


I climbed up some scaffolding last week. It was only two floors and as I climbed higher up the ladder my hands became tighter and tighter on each step. Gripping to the point where I was almost shouting at them to move to the next step!


This guy's got some cojones!

You'll love this video of a man working inside a Faraday cage.

Screw that, now hes gotta go back down and going down was always harder for me to do than the going up part.
Youd think it would be easier and safer to use a helicopter to lower them down.

Holy cow! Seeing this makes me wonder if I'm really up for skydiving for my next birthday.

First freak out comes at 1:40 then again at 4:20.

What a ridiculous design, regardless of why they have to go up there, no one should have to.

This guy makes a couple million a year, right?

Safer than an airplane

These guys should probably just have a parachute on and jump when they're done, if they can avoid hitting one of those other towers...

I am literally sick to my stomach and couldn't watch all of it.

So, what is the profile of someone who is willing to climb up to the top of the world like that?

I wonder if his partner coats the bottom of his boots with Vaseline on April fool's day.

*dangling and hanging by one hand*
"Oh Richard, you sly bastard you. 15 years in a row now. You'll never grow out of it will you?"

2:38 for me.

I don't feel fear as much as wonder.. but still. If I could feel fear it would be for that.

Like a mini alien battle...using every technique they can to conquer...
it's insane something like this exists in the universe.. but it does inside of us...

Slightly off topic, but I figured that some people would enjoy seeing these two videos if they have never seen what it would look like if you climbed the pyramid of Cheops. Kind of nauseating to imagine loosing your footing on the edge

So basically from what i can tell is that there is no secondary safety measure, if he falls while he is climbing that's it. i don't get it, how does that make sense. why cant they have some sort of pole that goes all the way to the top that they can stay attached to while climbing, or as another poster said lower them down by chopper, like they do with power lines.

Anyway, even though i got a little nauseous from it, thanks it was pretty interesting
