They have to be "adrenaline junkies" for sure. Yikes!!!!!There is a wire pinned into the wall that follows most of the walkway and can be used by people to latch onto as safety precaution, but it was not designated to carry much weight. The walkway was closed off in 2000 after 4 people died on it within a span of two years. Many travellers however find the way to get on El Caminito del Rey and get themselves the rush of walking on the most dangerous pathway in the world.

Early Native Americans had some kind of erie ability to have no fear of extreme heights.
