This video is sort of old, but oh my goodness does this not look like one of the most amazing places in the world.

To make things even crazier...he isn't strapping himself into the safety line.

I fell to my death several times while watching it! Imagine walking those beams, no safety line, and while holding a video camera to your eye!!!

What a great view but you would never catch me up there!

There is another version you can watch in high quality. It's amazing on the big screen format.

I am afraid of heights yet the prospect of placing a cache there would be a strong lure. **teehee** Don't give me any ideas since I think I might know of a wooden version (albeit not as high) on the outskirts of Vancouver. I just have to remember where I saw it.

Well that is my worse nightmare! I had trouble with Piglet's Bottomless Pit Cache.

Once you reach the end, do you have to retrace your steps? Wouldn't you hate to be STF on this one? Seems quite popular with all the traffic on the "trail" Smile

Yikes! Scary!

There is a cache there: Garganta Del Chorro Earthcache. I'd be using the equipment.

I beleive that Earthcache is close, but not actually on the trail itself. I think it overlooked or has a view of part of the trail.

On a side note...while researching this place, I came across another insane location.

This hike is in China, and is basically considered the most dangerous hike in the world.

Video below...note, there is some NSFW or kids language during a few parts...understandable given the situation for the guy in the video Smile

I can't even imagine what standing up there must be like....wow.
