Wow, my thighs were shaking watching these guys climb. The freaky part is what if the hands slip (bye bye). Someone should figure out the time it'll take to become splatter at ground level.

i think they make 50-60k/yr.

not enough for fact i dont think i could do it once , even for a big payout like 50million. i would likely freeze up off the elevator...then make myself get to the outside part and then it would be over. i dont think i could go anymore.
that is pure crazyness. i got sweaty and heart palpitations just watching that

50-60K, that's bullshit if true, who would ever do that?

Posts: 785 takes some serious balls. I could probably get to the top if I don't look down on my way up, but getting down is a whole other story.

You'd have to pay me millions to even consider this (without a harness).

Wow, this video sure is making the rounds. Simply amazing. A number of times I literally winced and held my breath, despite watching the video from the safety of my couch.

I'd do it. The fast way down would be to parachute.
