Can't embed unless you are a team member, IIRC.

I am in awe of anyone who can do that....I would NEVER be able to get off the elevator...and that part where he climbs that exterior ladder? lets just say that my level of fear would be somewhere between bedwetting and a near death experience..

I love the feeling of weightlessness so I would have to jump off when I got to the top.

That looks like fun! I know how I'd be getting down. And fired. That's plenty high for a base jump.

Yeah...fuck that. Fuck it very much.

I'd have no problem doing it, but I'd insist on clipping in. No way I'd free climb that.

I'm really surprised at how steady that tower was. I've seen 200 foot towers swing all over the place in the wind.

My stomach was in knots. I cannot imagine being that exposed and that high.

I did that shit for about 6 years. My record is 1,495' on WKBN in Youngstown, Oh. I don't know when that vid was made but "free climbing" is a thing of the past. 100% tie off now.

lol. 4th time is a charm.

I worked as a window cleaner in Manhattan for 14 years and the highest I went is about 900 feet ,and that was high enough for me.
