...if a storm is brewing there is no quick way down

Altogether "OH YES THERE IS!"

Now for those who bang on about Elf n Safety, this is what it was invented for. I would rather beg on the streets than do that. I don't mind heights, it's dying that I am averse to. The least they could do is give them a parachute. I did the Pamper Pole once on one of those team building days. I was only 30ft up and I nearly died of fear climbing on the bird table at the top. Like I said, it's not the height, it's the fear of falling and I was roped on. I bet they all weigh about 6 stones!

That is not only insane, it's immoral!

I never used to be scared of heights but that just wasn't fun. Donating body parts for a living has more appeal than doing that job :scared-yipes:

No way Jose! I've parachuted at night into the sea, but they can bugger off if they think i'm doing that!

Where's the proper Para....Greg!

I like to think there isn't anything I wouldn't do just because of fear, but that......... :?

First time I've ever experienced symptoms of vertigo whilst sat at ground level :shock:

I use to switch 11Kv and earth it down, when you racked out the switches you could hear the arcing, I most certainly gave it a lot of respect :mrgreen:

I tend to use my IPhone to keep up to date on the Forum. Problem is it will not show videos like this. So when I came in tonight I thought I would look to see what the fuss was about.

Like many on here I have had various jobs, amongst others I have worked high steel in the USA and I used to think fun at the weekend was free climbing cliffs.


Then I watched this, I genuinely had to sit down. What in the name of all that is Holy would possess anyone to do this.
