I mentioned to a friend the other day, that I wanted to find a good scary movie that would really scare me rather than relying on something jumping out at an unexpected time. This movie did that for me. Thanks!
BTW, if you made that loud screaming hag image pop up suddenly at the end, it would have killed me.
I know it could have been dangerous/expensive to do, but how awesome would it have been if near the end of the video, the climber detached the helmet cam (without it being too obvious to the viewer), said, "Here we go, goodbye cruel world" and then lightly tossed the camera out a few feet?
I used to have a friend that did that kind of work. Gotta have big ***** for sure to do free climbing like that. With safety, I would absolutely do that job, but with no safety lines the only thing going through my mind would be me slipping or something I was grabbing on to snapping off and me falling. I'd travel with a chute and base jump off, because I bet climbing back down is twice as rough as going up.
And the fact that it was a helmet cam made it look way more intense than it probably even looked IRL.
A buddy of mine climbed a high voltage pole one day when we were out longboarding. I forget how many feet it was, but if he fell even at 1/8 of the climb he would have died. He just moved some benches to get to the first rung and started climbing. He went to the top, and when he came back down he was soaking wet from sweat. I was actually kinda pissed he did it. The whole time I was thinking what was I gonna do if he fell.
