it actually seems relatively safe. the entire path is lined with cables to tie off on or guard rails. if you fall youre not going far... unless of course youre this bat-**** crazy camera man/lady who seems to have no regard for his or her safety. im putting this on my list of **** to do.

Walking as an extreme sport. Reminds me of something from the game Myst. Pretty cool. I'd be tempted.

lobo you gave me the most epic and awesome idea ever....

go there with a parachute.

walk the trail for a while till you're able to s**t bricks, then just hop off, free-fall for a while and have parachute fun.

nika: Wouldn't that also mean you'd have to be afraid of plummeting to your death and bouncing off rocks on the way down as well as the shitty cheap concrete possibility?

*SPOILER ALERT*
You see that metal wire that's hooked on to the sides? you hook a clip onto that so that even if you slip, you still hang on. Everyone the guy filmed was clipped on, but I think the guy with the camera might not have been suing a clip.
Still scary as hell though.

I wonder who built this trail? or what he/she was thinking? "Gee, wouldn't it be great to be able to walk along those cliffs?" Great views!

I did alpinism for 3 years so for me anything that's build out of concrete is more predictable in it's imperfection than something shaped by nature and not made primarily for humanoids walking on it.
So while hiking on this trail (I can't call it climbing, it's walking) you just have to be afraid they were cheap while building it and bought some Hungarian cement with 90% sand content.

nika, did you notice the holes in the concrete at one point in the trail?

thats where the "just path and stairs" can quickly become a freefall

though you could just pack a parachute and basejump off the top...

i WANT TO GO HERE so bad.

it's exciting to know somebody built this trail, and people still go here after it has long been crumbled.

Tl; eurodancey sound killed my interest halfway through.

About it: I couldn't stop think about this video I saw of some guy running this trail and monkeying his way past the people he met. I gotta agree with nika: This is just a guy walking a trail and some stairs.

This video is lost on me.
Besides those broken parts where you have to balance only on the pipe, all I see is a path and stairs.

I agree w/ cynn. If i had to go on that trail i would lose the flood gate and make the people pay to go thru as revenge though.

Me and my father agree atleast on one thing and thats "I am not afraid of heights, but the impact at the bottom." This video made my heart pound. He/she seemed to stroll along casually, as if he had walked that trail hundreds of times before.
