Recently I was in Toronto and took the super fast lift to the observation floor of the C N Tower. There’s a glass floor that enables you to look directly below you to ground level. Here’s a photo of it that I took in all it’s glory. The glass floor is at the base of that spaceship like protrusion near the top (at 1,000 feet above the ground).
I could not walk on the glass. The feeling it gave me actually turned my stomach. It was as if you were walking out to your death, so after 5 or 10 attempts I eventually officially “bottled it”.
Imagine then the feeling of climbing one of these babies. It’s a transmission tower that’s 1768 feet high and much of the climb is done without the aid of a safety harness.
Watching this made me feel ill and it’s only a video.
It is outstanding, so enjoy it, but look out your sick bag and stay with it to the end.
