    Nooooooooooooooooooo Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay.

    I am afraid of heights because falling will kill me. If there is a nice safe rail then I am ok. That other stuff... no thank you sir.

    Yeah if I was strapped into like a 5 point harness with wires and a rocket pack heights wouldn't bother me at all... I think the people who are actually afraid of heights are the ones who wouldn't even fly if they were Superman.

    Edit- also, I don't think I've ever been so captivated by a movie before... damn. Was this guy clipped to the wire the whole time?

    I seriously was thinking he was going to fall. Otherwise, that's insane, but not as bad as I thought it would be.

    Im scared of heights, drastically.

    I remember when I was younger (about 4), my parents tricked me into getting into a cable car, which then went up a cliff, and stopped.
    Hanging in mid-air, 50 (or 250? Im not sure) ft above some town.

    Never again.

    I got a feeling he's clipped in for most of the time. There are some cuts for no particular reason.

    Very nice... scary.

    I'm o.k. as long as I feel secure....and that did not look secure....

    Unless that was good editing, it didn't even look like he was taking the time to attach/detach from the wire/carrabiner line that was there.

    That was insane! Was he even strapped to that wire? He seemed to be moving fairly quick there!

    ... and where were the damn rails????

    It is more the splat at the end of the fall I have a problem with.

    I'm pretty scared of heights, but I'd love to do that hike if it weren't for all the completely destroyed walkways. No way I'm going to balance beam that stuff. Crazy.

    That was cool. I am not into rollercoasters or heights that much, but flying and such doesnt bother me.

    This, however, seems very insecure. As Plowking said, it didn't appear he took time to strap in the caribiners. Not as high as I expected, but still high enough for me to not go there.

    Wow, I'd love to try out that hike. Looks scary but that would be half the fun.

    I am scared to death of heights, and I would never do that.

    Pure awesome. I would love to be able to go there. I definately wouldn't be as bold as the cameraman, but I'd give it a go.

    And he wasn't clipping in or out of that wire.
