The scariest path in the world?

Postby rlown » Thu Mar 17, 2011 1:45 pm

A friend sent this to me. I'm really glad I don't have to do something like this, ever..

This walkway now serves as an aproach to Makinodromo, the famous climbing sector of El Chorro in Spain's Andalucia. And it is the hairiest path. The area of El Chorro situated in the south of Spain is renowned amongst travelers and mountain hikers for its stunning scenery and climbs, yet this is not the main attraction on offer, El Chorro is host to one of the most dangerous walkways in the world, built by workers to transport materials between the Chorro and Gaitanejo Falls

That kind of looks like fun to me Rlown, to bad it's not here in California.

Cool video B, though nothing to do with hiking, I really liked the dog in there.
