I could never do something like this myself, but really admire folks who can. :text-bravo:

Actually, reaching the top must be thrilling and the sights I'm sure very few people experience. I could never do it that's for sure, I prefer hobbies where the margin for DEATH is a bit less. But good for the people who have the skill and desire to enjoy something like that... :eusa-clap:

I have been going to the rock gym since October, I hardly have the stamina and strength to scale a 45' wall with hand and foot holds. It takes about 2-3 minutes steady with no stops to scale a level 8 (for reference beginners climb 5's and the highest at our gym is 13) When I come down I'm breathing heavy and my muscles in my forearms are so filled with potassium they are hard as rocks. So I can tell you that this guys strength and conditioning is about as high as you can get. I think he is nuts....think I'll stay in the gym!!

So when you fall they can have something to put your brains in when they scrap them off the rocks???

Seriously, I have a major fear of heights and I just can not imagine doing this. No ropes. One slip and nothing between you and the great beyond.

He's ok but he's climbing a wall with blocks protruding that give a good solid hold for an experienced climber. Lets see how he does on a cliff face.
