    This made me feel physically queezy.

    That would scare the hell out of me if I tried to cross it.

    It seems like there was a thread on this a while back, but I can't find it. Yeah, that's something you'd never find me doing though, I hate getting on a 6 foot ladder, let alone doing that. :p 

    Also, SixEleven77, are you in Lexington? I live in Richmond, if you're close, maybe me, you, and Insane Galvatron from the boards here should go TF hunting sometime together. :)

    As soon as I get home, I'm watching that video. The description alone made me curious, even though I'm afraid of heights as well.

    I liked the music. Now, I am not so much afraid of heights as I am of falling. But normally I am confident in myself to not worry about falling. I think for the sake of trying, I would consider it.

    I hated that part in metroid prime.

    Seriously, that was scary, but not as scary as it would have been building the Empire State building.

    I would have stopped when I saw the holes in the walkway. I'm not necessarily afraid to die but I'm also not looking for ways of speeding the process along.

    Was anybody else hoping that the camera holder would slow down and got a lil bit nervous when his was speeding up towards the end? I'm sitting here at how and I was still a bit ehhhh and ahh.:( 

    And if anyone ever fell off this(lord forbid) I think this is the only time you can yell "I regret nothingggggg!!!" and have everyone nod in agreement. The sight I feel are worth the risk but I wouldn't ever be brave enough to do it myself.

    I didn't get the nausea feeling, but I did get a couple of cold chills and my skin crawled a bit. (no joke)

    It's one thing to play a video game level, it's another altogether, to live it. No thanks, I'll pass.

    The last time we had at thread on this, I watched it and was mystified. I would never do it, but the guy also is attached to a rope most of the time that is embedded in the side of the mountain.

    The only thing about that video I found troubling was the music.

    Somebody better repair and maintain that pathway, sharpish, before other lives are lost braving it.
