Back in 2000, photographer Vincent Laforet scaled the Empire State building, a 1250 foot journey that would make me wet my pants.

Get the eff outta here....thats nuts, you gotta be born for that #$%@!!!

Whoa, I think I just had a heart attack, just by watching this video. I went to a camp, where we had to climb sixty feet up a tree, then we had to walk along a log. (It was REEAALLY hard) Thank God we had belayers (if you ever rockclimbed before, then you should know what "belay" means.) I was so scared that my knee's were shaking when I got up to log, and had to cross it. Now, THAT was sixty feet... I CAN'T DO 17,000!!!!!!!! That's insane!!!
