oi you
Have to admit I hard to watch. I did like the comment about there being no quick way down in a storm - Oh yes there is.

I couldn't do that job for all the tea in China; and the temptation to jump must be quite compelling!

I got anxious just watching that, and I am not afraid of heights (am afraid of falling off them though - i.e. I'm fine as long as I know I cannot fall).

I can't believe they don't clip themselves on, and some of the way he was climbing was a bit risky (from my pov), but it can be difficult to tell from the camera angle.

Bet they don't need to get an adrenaline rush from anything else!

I believe he actually got sacked for the free climbing bit as it was against company policy. Fair play to him though!

Got something to say?
