Reminds me of the crazy German guys doing a path like that on dirt bikes.

Hell no. I hate heights and about halfway through the video I realized that I was leaning everytime the camera moved to try and keep my balance.

I'll climb a communications tower to any height I need to. I'll even jump OFF the tower and trust the safety system if I have to. But walk that path? Fuck that, I'll stay home!

I used to play tag with my friends on high tension line pylons in the woods. That was WAY more intense than that video.

meh, doesn't look bad. There is a safety wire all along the wall so you can grab onto it and not fall, sort of like a railing.

Now, the video of the guys climbing that 1800 foot tall antenna with no safety harness, that fucking made my palms and face sweat watching that.

I think I have found the location for my B-O-L

Seriously, there is no way I would hike that. Screw that...

Watch the guys on the bikes I posted...no safety wire there...one glance off a rock and bye-bye...and there's no turning around. Oh, and it's a 2-way path...meet a goat on the way up? Good luck.

spent about 14 years as an Ironworker, I wouldn't even consider it.

Interesting that where the mountain is on the right it's not so bad, but when it's on my left I start to squirm a bit. Just the confidence in being right handed I guess.

No shit, with the parts where there is just exposed I-beam to walk on where there used to be stone on top of that, I would not be confident in walking on that, hoping the walkway doesn't give away on ya.

Cool path, neat video.

"El Chorro is host to one of the most dangerous walkways in the world, built by workers to transport materials between the Chorro and Gaitanejo Falls"

I'd be more curious to know the story of the workers...that obviously had balls of titanium to work on such a project.

Geez, bunch damn girls in here. Fer cripes sake, It's just a via ferrata. The steel cable that runs the length of it is what your tied into with a climbing harness.

First time I saw that video, I knew I had to go to Spain. If you're close enough there's one in Kentucky, West Virginia and Colorado. (and outside Vancouver and Ottawa.)

Good clean fun.

The two I posted, in Spain and China, are definitely items on my bucket list.

This. I feel like I should go out and pick a knife fight with an athletic stranger to help me calm down.

I probably wouldn't but it didn't look that bad, and there was that feel good rope

That was a nice peaceful 9 minutes, love when in heights.... when you can only hear your heartbeat and blood/adrenalin rushing through your body. It's only fun the first time

That was an amazing video, but there is no way would I trust my life on that rusted, dilapidated path. I'd rather run with scissors, point up on a buttered floor.....
