I don't think I'd have the nerve particularly on the sections where you have to balance on one rail with more than one arm's length away from the wall :shock:

Some will do anything for an adrenalin rush :roll: Reminds me of the group that hang hammocks way up high in the tree tops. Tree climbers, Have No Fear :mrgreen:

OR the "Birdmen" that jump off mountain cliffs, spread their arms, and soar to the bottom valley :roll:

Hang-gliders? Looks dangerous.

I did climb up in trees. I haven't camped there, but it is "a different perspective" that is very beautiful.

Maybe hang-gliding is like that? Maybe it is for the adrenalin?

That was not my experience with mountain-climbing.

For me, it was the perspective: the view from here.

The video: all I can say is, those guys would likely be comfortable on "high-iron" skyscrapers.

Not exactly hanggliding, Connie. I think the birdmen get a little more rush than a hangglider. :lol:

Birdmen: Extreme Sports?

Maybe, maybe not. These guys are skydivers without the airplane. They pop a parachute at the end.

Their risk is slamming against the mountain.
