Would you be brave enough?

Would you walk the 1.2 metre-wide walkway around Auckland’s famous Sky Tower – 192 metres above the ground, no handrails and nothing but air on either side of you?

I might do the Grand Canyon one if it didn't have a glass floor! Yikes!

Re: Would you be brave enough?

I was a rock climber in my younger days, so neither of them look that scary to me. The Grand Canyon one looks more fun with the glass floor and the Aukland one would be fun without the safety lines.

I'm still a bit of an adrenaline junkie - even at 63!!
