One of those phobias that seem to get worse the older we get.

I expect there are regiments of suitably qualified doctors who would class him as insane.

I've just been watching that suitably named film with Charles Bronson. Now what was it called................

 

Personally I'm not afraid of heights, just of falling.

Two seconds in and I bailed out. Too much for me.

I was quite pleased with myself as I managed 6 seconds.

My main concern would be the effect of strong wind up there. The surfaces were clean and dry, so mostly it was just balance and confidence.

On a similar note, Alain Robert, the French free climber has just scaled the 29 storey Meliá Barcelona Sky Hotel

I'm fine with those, it's the radio tower that is the scary one! I've posted this years ago.. then a few others did too:

Re the OP.

Scary from the beginning - but just managed to get to 1 min 30s before bailing out.

Re: What does this do to your stomach?

They are really just kiddies playing compared with this guy who recently free climbed El Capitan in California with no safety harnesses/ropes.  Leaping around on buildings is okay but there's safety within a few feet if the weather turns bad.

"...The most difficult part of the route is about 2,300 feet off the ground, where there are very small holds where only a thumb can fit...."
