    If you are afraid of heights, don't watch this!

    Awesome!

    I hope someone here knows where that is. I would like to know more about it. Just curious about who, what, when, where, how, and why.

    Thanks for posting the link. Very interesting.

    I felt like I was going over the side, even though I'm sitting in a chair- too suggestible, I'm afraid, but my hat's off to any of those guys. Whew!

    I didn't have a problem with heights until I took physics.



    wonder how many people died building the walkway...

    From the quality of the roads and bridges, it is clearly Texas, however I didn't recognize the neighborhood.

    That's good to know. I would have guessed Louisiana at first but none of the holes were filled with shopping carts and covered over with old mattresses. (Photo taken on Perrier Street in New Orleans last year)

    It's like a big, fat, hairy spider. I can't NOT look. Heights scare me and fascinate me at the same time. That video makes me sweat. Gorgeous scenery, though.

    The Wiki article said Málaga, Spain. It's quite beautiful.

    Originally built in 1901, this walkway now serves as an aproach to makinodromo, the famous climbing sector of El Chorro.

    I don't like heights, but I was compelled to watch the whole thing... awesome video.

    For reference, it is hard for me to go near the outside edge of the Space Needle with its substantial guard rail, and it is 100 feet shorter than that corroded walkway...

    Oh look, a Starbucks.

    You think that's scary, though (the worst was the guy/gal balancing across beams too far out to hold on to the wall), imagine being the poor schmuck(s) sent up there to build the damn thing.

    Kind of reminded me of Myst at times. Very cool.

    I wonder if someone should at least bring some boards or blocks of concrete to shore up those areas that are only just pipes.

    I thought that as well (also to cover some of the holes, to distribute the weight better), but would you want to be the guy trying to balance on that narrow platform while carrying a sheet of plywood? Not I!

    iirc many people die of heart attacks and such on the way down. Maybe that is false though. I could not help thinking of the poor builders of that thing.

    That looks totally f'ing awesome!!! Heights both scare and excite me...but I've repelled out of helicopters, spie rigged and repelled down mountain sides, so I'd probably do it.

    I would not be walking on a walkway in disrepair that is over 100 years old. Call me a wuss but there you have it.
