    I would go until I saw the parts that are missing.. then I'd turn right back around. Yikes!

    Yeah I'd go up until I had to walk across a rail. Don't think I'd do that. Although if it's jumpable, I'd jump across.

    It looks like you can at least hook your harness to the rope on the side for a majority of the walk, but there are some places where it doesn't appear that you can. And of course those are the scariest places on the path! I also would not want to slip while hooked in, and then have to pull myself back up. :eek:

    The scenery is stunning, though!

    what amazes me is the person with the camera just saunters across those bars - I'm guessing he's done it a bunch of times. I can imagine doing it (especially with that handy thread attached to the rock to hold onto :lol: ), but not so smoothly.

    Even if the trail was still whole, the idea of building that pathway so that workers could transport materials is just :eek:

    beautiful scenery though and I bet it's just exhilarating being up there (if you're not busy cryin' for your momma, that is)

    It's a good thing there is that video, because that's the only way I'm going to see it. No way am I walking across that bar when the road is out!

    Amazing to watch while sitting at a desk with one's feet rooted in stable ground. Those parts with the big gaps were terrifying!! I thought they must be carrying a plank with them, in some places there seemed only place for one foot.
