That made me feel physically sick! Hats off to them -- I couldn't do it! Thanks for the warning, won't be watching. I get vertigo when faced with heights.

Thanks for the warning, won't be watching. I get vertigo when faced with heights. Likewise! I get a nose-bleed stepping up onto the bathroom scales.

By the time he took to get to the top it would be time to come back down again. Gotta give him some respect though, I couldnt do that if the world depended on it

They could put a $10 million check at the top and I still would not do it. Open extreme heights freak me out. Inside the top floor of the Sears Tower I would be ok. I heard of a worker a few years ago here in MT or maybe ND that died falling off a very tall radio tower while changing a red warning light. Anyway I hope these guys get paid very well.

I am not afraid of heights - I actually like being up high... However I really, really, really don't like edges....

I found this so hard to watch all the way through, especially negotiating some of the more trickier sections and reaching the top. Wow to the guys who do this! They should jump off the top assassins creed style (though maybe not into a hay stack). would never do this job no matter how much i was paid!

Professional athletes do not have this kind of skill and courage.
