It`s high up, but I think I`d be alright as long as I was strapped to it, as these guys obviously are. I mean if you`d fall, you`d be caught--worst case just for a second--and be able to grab one of the million handholds and survive...the only real danger would be getting pushed off by the wind at the point.

Why is everybody so impressed with the cameraman? He`s about 5-10 feet higher than those other two guys and if any of them fall off those extra couple of feet won`t make one damned bit of difference. They should be wearing hardhats because if lets say the guy holding the camera drops it or a hammer or something and it hits a lower guy in the head that will suck, plus if you fall off they have something to scoop you up with.

I hear changing the light bulb on top of the Empire State Building is one of the most dangerous jobs.

i suppose the good news is they don`t have to climb that one anymore. (note the matching building visible through the lower righthand bit of the antenna grid).

Can handle the height - not so much for the cold and wind aspects. Still, would have to have a LOT of faith in your harness...

I don`t think that would be too bad if i was sure i was secure. If i had any doubt i would crap my pants, then probably fall.

Ya know, I just thought of something...

You know how it looks terrifying to be in THEIR position?

Imagine being the camera man who not only has to be higher than them, but also DELIBERATELY LOOKING DOWN...
