Truly sickening! Not for the faint of heart!

How a man could do such a thing is beyond comprehension!

Cool. The placement of the camera on the helmet is such that I get a little empathetic adrenaline, or whatever the physical sort of fear response is (but milder) that I would actually get in this situation. Hey, it's sort of like porn for climbing freaks.

pretty cool. My friend is afraid of heights and he couldn't watch.

That was awesome - no way I'd do it without some sort of lightweight parachute on my back !

I'm sure the climber isn't some limp wristed left winger. Obama would probably get about 5 feet off the ground before he got dizzy.

And I doubted that there was a way to connect a video of a guy climbing so high and the sad state of politics in this country. Boy, was I wrong.

Rayray say: Obama bad, conservo good. There's nothing else to him.

Don't have to relate politicans for that and you knew it.

Anyway, I wonder how much those climbers getting paid for doing it.

Right....stereotypical conservative.

I agree with politics being irrelevant. But for the sake of playing along with Ray:

These guys have huevos. They're beyond liberal. They're Norwegian and French.

That's got to be the extreme sport of all extreme sports. Crazy Europeans.

My coworker and I were wondering the same thing.. My guess would be at least $150-200k because of the risk involved... From what I understand, crane operators make a great living as well because of the risk.

marcus - just to clear things up, elliemae no say anything about the political leanings of a person whose job it is to climb a huge effin' tower. rayray (of course) was able to correlate an innocuous video into a political statement, possibly because he doesn't have anything else to him other than hating President Obama.

yawn.
