I had to pause this 5-6 times. I get bad vertigo.

I know! Once they're all the way up the top, it's like it's not even designed to be climbed.

on the light side of things, wonder what Cellphone coverage will be like xD

But towards the end when it says "this is the tricky part, getting on top"

This video didn't actually make me sick.

The first thing that popped into my mind though was, what if they needed to go toilet O___O lol

lolz, well at that height if you needed to pee it would possibly come down as a sort of rain.

I'd say they would have a Parachute just in case if they fall, but there will be no way I could do that!

I don't see any way that this would be allowed in NZ.  Don't know anywhere in the Prevention of Falls Guidelines that would allow this!

If I stayed attached with at least one point of attachment at all times. I'd be happy to climb it.

Nah I think it'd be more dangerous parachuting. The chute lines would get caught on the tower. Thats assuming they arn't blown into the tower first.

Yah this is a pretty awesome climb. I've climbed a few constructions cranes and a couple of towers in my youth, but this looks massively daunting. And no safety, well not permenantley attached, that is very scary!

There's some discussion of the video here, the site it originally came from. Apparently, it's totally illegal to free climb as he was.
