There's *NO* way I would attempt it as heights isn't really my thing.

It's a wonder that there is anyone that daring especially with the risk of thunderstorms !

I believe we have seen this video before, I am not scared of heights but that is just too extreme for me! Knowing me I would get halfway up and then need to have a leak!

Oh I had no idea that it had been posted before !

One thing that I can't believe is that the climbers are not wearing any clothing on their arms.

I would have thought at that height the air would be freezing cold !

The use of helicopters have improved the safety margins for this type of work, but looking at the video, I would be a little concerned about wearing a metallic wrist watch.

Would mention that the video does open with Internet Explorer, but it takes a little time or a couple of tries!.

Defiantly not on my list of things to do.

The Apollo spacecraft assembly building was constructed by people who had no problems with high building construction. A particular tribe of Indians where found not to suffer with vertigo and made up most of the workforce.
