Not funny, but bloody scary......

(There is a small animation at the start you need to sit through)

How could anyone do that? I felt very light headed and ill and really struggled to watch. Have a terrible phobia of heights that sometimes I think I might have finally grown out of then I see something that and realise I'll probably never be free of it.

Regularly working in the top floors of a skyscraper (as I do), makes you get used to looking outside and noticing small ants crawling the city streets, but once you get outside in the open air, especially when windy, it does get scary.

Ugh. Difficult to watch. Free climbing in the open air at that height? I wonder how much movement there is in that thing, especially while carrying a 30lb tool bag?

Geez, that was difficult to watch all the way. Interesting physical reaction. I was sweating, shallow-breating, and finding all sorts of non-logical reasons not to keep watching.

Was it just me, or was he not holding on at all when he was tieing-off at the top?????
