    Afraid of heights? You might not want to watch this

    Video below to make anyone get vertigo!

    io9.com/563…nce

    Description: This video contains no special effects, and no fancy stunts. But it will scare the cr*p out of you. That's because you're watching from a head-mounted camera as an engineer scales an antenna tower over 1,700 feet high.

    Created for The Online Engineer site, what this video captures isn't just a thrill ride - though frankly it is that - you also get to see the different parts of the giant antenna. And learn a little bit about OSHA rules, which apparently say that it's OK for people to free climb a tiny pole hundreds of feet in the air with a thunderstorm brewing in the distance. Seriously, when I realized the guy wasn't attached to this pole with anything other than his hands and feet, I almost had a heart attack.

    yeah seen that before, a lot of people have died trying to do that

    I'm scared when I'm on a step ladder... I would not do that for all the tea in china.

    i got cold feet and sweaty parms from jsut watching it.....dam there … i got cold feet and sweaty parms from jsut watching it.....dam there brave!



    me too - that was horrible! I watched all 7.5 mins of it and absolutely terrified of heights!! What a crazy job. Plus that clip thing could easily slide off each rung he clipped it onto!

    What no Donkey Kong at the top throwing barrels?

    thats well bad

    I could do that up until the last bit where the ladder got pretty thin and then you have to stand on top, no chance I'd do that, I'd end up falling off.

    Gets a little insane 2 mins in.



    Isn't that how people die like? showing off. You can see him starting to struggle, if he's struggling to pull himself up how the hell is he going to pull him self back up onto the crane, but then he does.

    I'm obviously not one of the resident HUKD hardmen who seem capable of doing anything better and easier than whatever is posted on here.

    That looks truly terryfying especially when right at the end he stand up on the plinth. How on earth can he be that fearless? Climbing the ladder without being hooked on, balls of steel.

    Just hope he remembered to take the new bulb with him

    Would imagine at that height it's quite windy and that tower must be moving around a tad.

    hijack a helicopter in gta 4 and crash/land the thing on one of the highest buildings in the city and get out on the roof. Inch towards the edge of the building, stop just before the ledge and admire the view then jump. It's quite a thrill.
