I can't even watch that...
There is not enough money in the world to induce me to climb somethig like that. Horrifying.
I get tingles watching that sitting on my couch, nevermind actually doing it. How can someone actually free climb at that altitude without being paralyzed by fear?! Incredible.
“Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes.”
I don't think I could climb sixty feet much less 1700!

Holy cockpoppies... I'm getting vertigo just watching this thing!
This guy has brass balls...
EDIT - Interesting historical note - The workers on some of the world's first big buildings were actually sailors, the people who were most used to doing risky work at high levels. It's for this reason that especially tall buildings today are called "skyscrapers" - It was a term borrowed from sailing terminology.
...Where did you get that hat, where did you get that tile? Isn't it a nobby one and just the proper style! I should like to have one just the same as that. Whereever I go they'd shout "hello, where did you get that hat?..."
