Norway's Trollunga

Scroll down the page. Don't think I'd be doing what they're doing. I'd feel a strong compulsion to throw myself off.

Ooop. I think I could stand on it though I'd probably feel happier lying down, Svetlana-style. But sitting with my feet dangling over the edge? No way.

Sorry to non-facebook forummers, this is a 46 second video on Facebook that I don't know how to embed here. It is a walk along a snowy summit of the Matterhorn.

FFS. Is it possible to block a thread on this forum? I keep dipping in whenever it gets added to - and instantly regretting it.

The Skycoaster at Royal Gorge Park, Colorado.


Royal Gorge Bridge

Crossing the bridge was scary enough for me; the Skycoaster puts at least another 150' between you and the Arkansas River for a 1200' drop.  I witnessed an eighty year old grandmother on the Skycoaster :o

I could only watch a few seconds of that Roaders, before my palms started sweating. That was enough thrill for me. I know I couldn't do that, even on my hands and knees!!!!! Thank God it wasn't windy. Bonkers.

Unusually, this is on BBC iPlayer, Danny MacAskill cycling along the Cuillins ridge.  The entire programme isn't under this category, but definitely a few of the cuts made me very nervous!  The program ends with the final film, which I presume is also on YouTube.
Actually, it is rocket science.

It looks like El Caminito del Rey will no longer count in this thread.  They've rebuilt it, and it's due to be reopened tomorrow.  The new path is obviously a mixture of rebuilding the old one, and in places entirely replacing it with a new path, above the old one, which you can see below it in this video.

Still enough to make you nervous, but no longer in the "Never in a million years" category. ;D

Crimminy, I assumed that was CGI at first. That A380 must have been flying just above stall speed.

That looks great fun! Though perhaps not quite so close to another aircraft...

Driving trucks, laden down with granite stones, down from a quarry. Rather them than me.

Watch from 6 minutes in I say.
