:D A mate pointed it out to me and I posted the link as soon as I'd finished watching.

Sadly the video has been taken off YouTube now as it seems the guy who features in it fears for his job which is fair enough. There's an explanation here if anyone's interested - theonlineengineer.org

I found it here http://www.ebaumsworld.com/video/watch/81100181/

obviously, given the sensitivity of the material, please do not share this link beyond this thread.

The whole thing is really interesting from a technical standpoint. However, I found the whole thing an order of magnitude more interesting from the fear standpoint. It gives me the willies just watching it !

Brave or mad ? who knows. I bet they have trouble getting life insurance!

either very slowly or very quickly - it all depends how careful you are.

I hate heights and now feel sick - really! I watched the whole thing with my hand over my mouth whilst generating unusual amounts of saliva :oops:

Yeah, he climbs most of it freestyle, without using that hook. They said it's because it's a lot faster 8)
