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!!
