    I've seen that before, but was still freaked out once again. Not sure that safety link would do a lot of good on those top pegs. And it seems there were a lot of places your hands could slip...

    We were just talking about that here at work (shhhhhh - don't tell my boss). Likely, the stretch and bounce at the bottom of the safety line is going to pop the safety hook off the peg - then you're treading air.

    Such a megatree would lend new meaning to the term "superstrings". Having been to the sky deck of the... er... Wills Tower several times, yep, looks just like that from up there.

    Too bad they didn't show what they climbed all that way to do.

    Would be fun to para-sail down...

    I think I broke into an anxious sweat watching that. I wonder if they were packing parachutes "just in case".

    Ok .. not sure about anybody else ... but the climb UP is usually the EASY part . The HARD part is going back DOWN !
