    HOLY CRAP.

    My hands and feet are COVERED in sweat. I had to look away from the screen at parts of it... and now I have to change my socks. gross. LOL.

    I would never do that. not even a million dollars could get me up above 20ft free-climbing.

    Yeah repost by my heart is still skipping beats even the 2nd time watching it. I can feel my arms getting weak and my body getting heavy just watching it.

    I remember when I would climb towers as a kid how heavy my arms felt especially when I looked down and how weak my hands/grip felt.... I can just see/feel myself free falling from the top....

    I can't understand the getting down part either. When the climbers get to different levels it looked ridiculously hard enough to get UP... getting down... without safety wires?? it doesn't even seem possible.

    And WTF would happen if the wind just like.... blew really hard? lol.

    I can't believe people would do this job.

    I wonder what type of danger-pay they get for a job like that. lol. That's gotta be up there with like deep-sea underwater welding as one of the most dangerous jobs.

    I think they make extremely good money. It's something I would do if the opportunity presented itself. Wish I could see this vid it sounds insane.

    Found it on YouTube and holy shit. I would do it if the money was right but I'd use my safety harness more than he did. Fvck free climbing. That dude is insane.

    I'm sure they have to climb down. OSHA wouldn't let them jump.
