    My own tips:

    1. Don't look down.
    2. Don't drop any tools.
    3. Go to the toilet before you start.

    Hell of a commute yes, but at least you don't have to worry about getting exercise!

    Though it'll really, really, REALLY suck if you ever drop a tool that you need over the side.

    I have an inner ear problem so I get vertigo and lose balance at a pretty small distance off the ground (also makes for crappy motion sickness) and this video terrified me. I kept feeling off balance.

    I kept thinking they must have those mini chutes but the video never showed how they came back down nor did I see any chutes. Not to mention how cold it'd be up there. yikes. Not even little crows nest to rest in.

    That looks fun!

    I have no fear of heights whatsoever. Good exercise and a great view.

    Awesome.

    That climb would totally suck on a windy, rainy, or snowy day.
