Originally built in 1901, 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.

crazy dumb kids.
Holy Frijoles!!! I have terrible acrophobia and watching the video almost made me faint...
I’d pay good money to see a film like that done by Michael Moore, but he would have to be the cameraman.
the guy doing the video states that it is unedited..he was going at a pretty fast clip...
here is some info on the place
I am not good with heights..and boy does that make you feel something in the pit of your stomach.
Do you remember the scene with Tom Cruise on the face of a cliff..that supposedly was for real and not in front of a green screen...or is it blue screen..anyway..not fake.
I would love to see him do that Spanish Walk ;-)
Wow... Just.... WOW!!!!
Those dudes have BALLS!!!!
Ain’t no way in Heaven, Hell or anywhere in between, you would ever get me on that path.
I'd seen it before but I'm saving the link this time.
There is at least a tether in some places.
I guess those backpacks are really parachutes to give the 'hikers' a false sense of survivability.
Now get IMAX out there!
Holy crap. Check that one off my list of places to practice riding my unicycle...
He (the guy holding the camera) was moving — it would have been interesting to have a camera on him from behind or ahead.
I never heard about Tom Cruise — interesting.
There isn’t enough money, gold, silver, precious gems, precious minerals in the Milky Way to get me to walk that thing!
(Must be nice not to have a fear of heights.)
My hands are sweating!
5:44 ACK ACK ACK!
No thanks. I had enough trouble walking over the steel deck hanging bridges in Costa Rica last year (2000 feet in the air). At least there we had handrails and a 3' walkway (although it swayed a great deal. ;-)
How were sand, gravel and cement (the ingredients of concrete) carried up to those heights, and mixed and placed, and floated and trowelled?? And the steel bars hauled up and fitted and installed?
Just plain crazy.
I made a discovery watching that. “Hair standing on end” is NOT just an expression.
Scared me just watchin’!
If it were Russia, the answer would be political prisoners, most of whom were not expected to survive. And Walter Duranty would have been there to celebrate the triumph of inspired socialist labor.
But in Spain, I don't know.
