Had to share it, made my toes curl up.
Its sort of on topic, he's got a video camera strapped to his head.

Wow, unbelievable. I found myself getting very tense while watching that.

Yup, made me feel pretty ill. I don't do heights very well, especially out in the open like that. I struggled at the end but made myself watch it...

The free climbing is what got me. Just knowing I wouldn't be attached to anything would freak me out. Can't believe people actually do that as their job.

Its just as fantastic to watch every time.

One of the youtube comments on the first video of this that was put out was pretty funny.

"The 30 pounds of tools needed to get work done are nothing compared to the 60 pounds of pure balls needed for the climb itself"

Also, I have a very strange feeling that they are primarily up there to inspect and or change the beacon lamp.
