I am not a fan of heights, this would be a nightmare for me.

Anyone remember the post of a geezer sunbathing on top of a wind turbine tower, no harness or cradle, then there was that man on a wire, no place for jelly legs there.

I don't like heights.It's not so bad if I'm on a natural tall thing but any building,no thank you.
Buildings are getting taller and you still need someone to risk their lives just to clean the windows.It doesn't make sense.

Re: Scary

A few weeks ago we were gawping up at the sheer face of El Capitan, in Yosemite National Park, California.

Next week, Thursday May23rd Channel 4 @ 9 pm is the Oscar winning film Free Solo, about the climber Alex Honnold who climbed this 3,000ft face without ropes.
Quite mad of course!

Swims make sure you don't watch it!

I love heights...but took some persuading to sit and lean back against the glass wall at the top of the Space Needle tower in Seattle.
My daughter and her partner happily stood on the glass bench and holding hands both leant back against the glass wall!
Of course it's perfectly safe, the danger is all in your mind, but I couldn't look!!
Nor could I walk across the glass floor, just simply couldn't do it!!
