To a guy who is nervous on a rooftop, this is insane.

I had other things to write about today but Debbi forwarded this to me and I just could not think of anything until I got this link out to you.

I can not imagine how ANY person can physically or mentally do this, yet she is apparently not alone in her hobby.

Trust your grip is one thing, but how do you put your life on the line based on the strength of the rock?

I acutally got a little woozy just watching.

I jumped out of airplanes when I was in the service and packed parachutes, but I couldn't watch that gal. She was like spiderman or woman climbing under the edges of the rocks and climbing straight up.

I could jump out of Aircraft, but I am still scared of heights. I trusted the parachutes I jumped, so I felt safe jumping out of airplanes and helicopters.

But don't ask me to climb a wall of stone that may have poisonous creatures in crevices I would have to put my fingers in. Just seeing a bird or lizard move in front of me would make me fall.

I saw a small video on the news one night this week where a young woman was doing acrobatics above a bridge. She was hanging by cloth from the top structure of the bridge. When she got down, she was arrested. She probably stopped traffic. This may be even scarier.

If the bridge had water under it and my family was paid $1 million, MAYBE. I say my family becaue I doubt my heart would take the thrill of falling to the water. Make that TREEROR.
