That... almost looks like fun. It'd scare the shit out of me, but I'm pretty sure I would be able to make myself go most of the way up.
I'm sure everyone here has seen these sorts of videos, but they're still pretty fun to watch. The one guy doesn't even wear gloves.
I can't imagine why. Maybe he doesn't trust them, I know in some cases I'd rather use my hands, but it seems like it probably gets
cold up there. I wouldn't want to risk my hands getting too cold to grip things effectively. I also probably wouldn't be standing on ledges
and shit like that. Still, looks like a huge adrenaline rush.


Also some people die:

Balls of depleted fucking uranium right there. I've climbed cranes & other structures before but nothing like that height. At least they're taking precautions, although I'd definitely wear gloves because my hands got sweaty just from watching the videos. Mom's spaghetti and all that.

Fuck that.

My teeth are clenched so hard together I need a crowbar to open my jaws now.

A sad cautionary tail - nydailynews.com/new-york/manhattan/man-falls-death-climbing-seasons-hotel-article-1.2481559

Other than that, if you take the right precautions then go for it. Consider something like a "Cow's Tail" as a minimum though, simply about 3ft of rope with a krab on either end.
