I would fly my balloon higher than that. Much higher. Funny that height in the balloon never bothered me but just watching this freaks me out.

There is a tower farm outside of Orlando that was being serviced like this a few years back. An older guy was climbing while his 20-something daughter waited in the truck. He didn't use a safety line either. He slipped from about 3/4 up. Both of them had an eternity of seconds before his big splat.

I hear you. I abseil and heights above 60ft do not work my nerves as much as the heights lowers than 60. I was also a bit freaked by this video.

I wonder how fast the climb down is for them? I'm sure it's a little quicker than climbing up, but I bet it feels like eternity.
