This is "loosely related" to boating in that it reminds me once again how very happy I am living at sea level....

Wow...No thanks...not even clipped in. Besides my wife would NEVER do anything like this and would freak if I attempted it. It would be interesting to see how it was built.

The geology is interesting. A few places show completely vertical strata of what was once ocean bottom.

What was it used for?

Found this tidbit on Wiki...

Caminito del Rey - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Funny this is, I think they have a bit wrong... They said that parts of the walkway have fallen and since been replaced with steam beams. I think those steel beams are the frame work and the concrete decking is what fell away.

I think that video guy is nutz. He was stepping on concrete that looked like it was ready to fall away and he was not strapped onto the lifeline. He also walked free across the beams and sometimes it looked like the wall was too far away to possibly have one hand on it. I think he was balancing.

Scary!
