I've got a head for heights!

Here is some quite staggering footage taken from a walk through a valley in Southern Spain. Seemingly the pathway was built back in 1901 but as you can see it hasn't seen a good refurb in quite some time - probably 109 years or so. There is a rather flimsy cable you are able to attach yourself to save you if you fall however I don't think I'd trust this with my life (for what that's worth). I think this footage is a few years old but it puts the fear in God in you nonetheless. Now I'm no sufferer of vertigo but I don't think this is a yomp I'll be hurrying to tick off and will leave this to the adventurous climbers amongst you. Enjoy and let me know how you get on!

P.S. Don't forget your bicycle clips.

The kings walkway.
Looks a challenge doesn't it.
Glad it's not on my way home from the pub!

Ha ha.

Pretty terrifying. I think I would probably feel about as ill on that walk as I generally do on my way home from the pub :-)

I found myself pushing further and further back into my chair and then grabbing hold of the desk at some points.
Terrifying stuff for a Flatlander like me!

Yeah certainly gets the heart pumping. Pretty harrowing stuff. Probably time for a lie down now - and breathe........

Oh, heck! Where's my stomach gone? Don't think I'll be walking this one! Great gorge, though.
