Only if the pay was right.

'Right':

One climb
Lifetime supply of money
100 virgins

Oh dear lord!

They should pay me for watching that video.

bmcgee 09-15-2010 3:57 PM

Those guys have some balls. I don't really consider myself afraid of heights, but you couldn't pay me enough to do that.

guido 09-15-2010 4:30 PM

Maybe if I had a parachute attached to my back.

What do you suppose those guys do for an adrenaline rush. Something tells me going wakeboarding wouldn't do it.

phatboypimp 09-15-2010 4:39 PM

I got sensations in my nether-regions just watching that......

pnichols 09-15-2010 4:45 PM

My hands were sweating so bad while I watched that.

stephan 09-15-2010 4:45 PM

Yikes, I looked down halfway through it and yep, my palms are sweating like they never have.

I love the comments on the youtube site......."that guy is carrying his steel balls in that red tool bag".....lol

Travis Pastrana would base jump off the top. That would be a base jumper's dream job.

helinut 09-16-2010 11:22 AM

I would be all over that, as long as I had a BASE rig on. Would be amazing to work up there, then take the express elevator down. :)

Granted I skydived for 4 years with 650 jumps.

hatepain 09-16-2010 3:11 PM

Money has got to be good for that. I just kept thinking "where in the hell is this guy going?'"

bac 09-16-2010 4:04 PM

That is absolutely crazy!

I would have thought they made really good money too, but from this interview I found, pay starts at $30k a year and caps at about $50k

WOW!!! now i want to see the video of them climbing down.

mattgettel 09-29-2010 5:52 AM

man that is wild!

jaegermaster 09-29-2010 7:03 PM

It would be my luck I would get to the top and not have the right size wrench. I guess once you are high enough to die from the fall, what's a little higher?

My palms were sweating too.
