No no no no no no.

What he said. I struggle to use a set of foldaway steps about 3ft high to get into the loft and nearly didn't make the interview for my current job as I stepped out of the lift onto the 7th floor glass balcony and ran straight back in again.

Are some people just born without a sense of their own mortality?!

Ws in San Jose in 07' and we went up in a lift and when it stopped we were on the top floor of Government buildings, holy christ I nearly creamed myself, 2 billion floors up or so I thought.

My take -- He wants to feel an incredible rush that none of the rest of us will ever experience. And he knows he's going to die someday doing it. "Everybody who has made Free Soloing a big part of their life is dead now."

Just watch it!

Didn't realise there was a thread on it. Watched half of it so far. Crazy as fuck. So methodical though. He knows every nook and cranny in that wall.

This isnít rock climbing, and it isnít Yosemite. Itís Ďjustí scrambling and itís Ďonlyí Snowdonia....but, it gives us in this thread the thing that we simultaneously crave and hate. Those stomach-flipping moments of terror ;D

P.S.  Before the mountaineers pile in and say thatís easy/nowt etc., yep I get that. I like a bit of scrambling but as a mere mortal thereís no way Iíd do this...

That's a lovely scramble and props to anyone attempting it. Back in the 80's, living in Scotland, we used to think that the 'Scrambles in Lochaber' guidebook contained more objective dangers than the Ben Nevis rock climbing guide! I once had to 'assist' a cragfast team on the old Honister Crag northface scramble. Glad I had a rope with me that day.  As an activity, scrambling shouldn't be underestimated.

Itís that bit near the top where he goes along that little ledge that gets me. I wouldnít have the technical ability to do some of the more awkward bits, but itís those moments of Ďexposureí where my vertigo would kick in and Iíd be screwed. Well not vertigo as such, just the thought of one wrong move and itís all over. I just havenít got the bottle for it.

Why not? All he's doing is sitting on a roof, no different from sitting on the floor.

Will never forget when I was in World Trade Center. They had this place where you could sit and look down through a window. It didn't matter that it was all safe, looking down was scary. To know that there's a lunatic who actually walked between the two towers on a tightrope...
