I'm terrified of heights, yet I'm oddly compelled to them. Please post any bottom clenching height shots you have here.

To kick things off, this is me on Tuesday on the glass floor at Blackpool Tower.

And on Thursday, I climbed the 274 steps of Jacob's Ladder at Cheddar Gorge to start my ascent of the cliff path to this little spot

Let's put a stop to this thread now.
It's frightening the life out of me. :eek-31:

Must admit, the older I get the worse I am with heights .... especially when on a ladder etc.

I’m the same. As a child, I had several family members in the construction industry and they used to take me up to the roofs of multi storey building projects, often by ladder (obviously this wouldn’t be allowed today). Now I struggle to reach gutter height off a ladder.

2016. I talked my wife into joining me on a tethered balloon flight. The pilot seemed to be having technical difficulties at maximum altitude. He was talking over a 2 way radio with a concerned look on his face. The wife was very quiet for the rest of the day.

Part of my surveying jobs for state road authority.
I would climb up inside the A tower to check the nuts for tension at the ends of the huge cables holding it all together.
An awesome view from the top.
There's a small steel hatch that opens out into thin air!
It was finished in 1968

Here's a link to an external photo, bit distorted.
I've a few but can't find just now

Humber Bridge. I think it was the official opening, judging by the cars. Taken by my father from the top of one of the towers.

Just noticed another one of my father's old photos, I guess early 1980s. Not mu43 though.

Hopefully by previous arrangement only :whistling:
I think they closed off the road for her. They seem to do that quite often.

The fun part about these stairs is that they are at 6,000ft above sea level, so no luck getting oxygen for this sap that normally lives at 1,000ft above sea level. Forgive the exposure of ye ol’ Kodak bridge camera. I think it was feeling it, too.
