        Been high and on some stuff that would make one shudder... The swaying was the thing that got me..

        Upper body strength and steroids in their backside.... That last bit on the outside of the red shaft... I am OK with... BUT IT WOULD BE MOVING !!!!


        Then they clip off onto some old crappy gal pipe :-?

          Well the first step on the road to substance abuse reform is admitting you have a problem... oh, I see, you mean climbing towers and such.

          That is insane. Whatever those guys are paid, it isnt enough.

              The trip from the top to the bottom should take around 12 seconds, depending on how you fall.

              If your not a regular skydiver the first 6 seconds are lost to sensory overload, from my limited experience the next 6 seconds would be spent frantically trying to grab something, anything.

              Couldnt even get one ristretto down in that little time!

                  I started watching and was thinking...Yeah! I can do this job. Might have to work on my muscles a bit, but otherwise I can do this.

                  I dont have a problem with heights as long as I trust the structure is sound, have a decent platform to stand on or am inside a cage or am hooked on a safety line. I dont even mind sway if I know I have a safety cage or line.

                  Then he climbs out of the cage and "free climbs", not hooked on! Now Im thinking Noooo, I dont want to do this! Then he starts climbing that red part at the top...still not hooked on! And wearing what seems to be loose fitting dodgy gloves too. Definitely not for me!

                  These guys are certified NUTS. I have had people committed to psychiatric institutions for less than that.

                    Yeah...

                    Takes a special kind of person to do this stuff alright. Climbing 100 Metre Lighting Towers is about my limit....

                      Lordy!

                      I love heights, and any time I see something like this it reminds me of the time when I worked on Sydneys Gateway building. We had some long, narrow slabs of marble to instal and I scored the job of standing on top of the express lift, stabilising the length of marble with one hand and holding on to the cable with the other. 40 odd floors, very fast, and in almost total darkness was an experience Ill never forget.

                      Ah, the good old days! ;D

                      Dont know that I could do this guys job though, especially with some of those safety harness placements!

                            It makes it easier to identify the body if they can find a whole head.
