Watching the Riots



It hurt me to look at this photo, given my acrophobia.  I can't imagine climbing down from there... let alone climbing up.

  4. Acrophobia? Et tu?! Hory crap! It has a name? I used to teach rappelling, took every course at Yosemite Mountaineering school, climbed me some rock, stood on the top of Half Dome for a photo, climbed Mt Whitney and look over the edge and now....put me on the roof to hang Christams lights and the knees go wobbly. I can fly a plane but Lord open the door and look down.....Gaaaahhhh!

    I just figured it was olde age......older,...wiser,...yannow.

    1. I've always had a fear of heights; I think I got it from my Mom, who was the same way. The weird thing is I had to climb radar antennae in my AF job, so I left my fingerprints in aluminum and steel ALL over the Free World. I HATED it but I had to do it. I never once froze... but I sure as Hell came CLOSE on occasion.

Just be polite... that's all I ask.
