    I didn't actually watch it before, the initial pic was enough.

    I heard some suspicious clicky noises...but no swearing.

    Now, having seen all the cables, there are at least lots of things to hang onto with your hands. I still wouldn't do it, though.

    Huge drop, although once it's beyond 50 or 100 ft, you're still dead, you just have a bit more time to realise it's about to happen!

    Did a bit of Via Ferrata-ing with OH. I got to the top much faster than him. I don't really enjoy it, so I just pulled myself up using the cables. He tried to climb it all without pulling on the fixed hardware.

    You couldn't get me anywhere near a Via Ferrata - I get dizzy standing on a chair!
