Was sent this from a 'friend' ....
That's seriously bad. My stomach was doing flips!
It's no worse than a lot of Via Ferrata in the Dolomites or the Alps. There is clearly a safety wire and some people are using harnesses and via ferrata type y-slings.
Piece of cake.
I've walked that path - although I didn't get very far
It is officially closed because it is crazily dangerous - in fact the path doesn't exist for long segments and bits fall off as you walk along which I found slightly worrying!
Beautiful though (great cycling country BTW - we were on a cycling holiday when we detoured off to see the path)
What's scary about that? I'd do that on my MTB.
I think you'd fall off Seriously.
There is no way of getting to the end without using the safety harness.
The video is less scary than the path (or maybe I'm just a wimp)
I can recommend cycling around the gorge to the end of the path where there is a reservoir.
There is a lovely little hotel there, with a pool that looks out over the reservoir and the path, and serves a mean paella. It was completely empty when we were there (and that was in June)
How about the HuaShan trail?
I've even found a picture of the hotel - brings back happy memories.
If you look around you can see the railway tunnel (complete withe train) - that's where the path ends
There were about 15 of us cycling from Grenada to Seville and 9 of them wimped out of 2 days and stayed on at the hotel as it was so lovely and the village has a station so they could meet us later in Ronda
Erm - thanks but I'll pass on that one
I was cringing just watching the video. I would never walk that path.
This'll cure your constipation!
There's a similar clip on youtube of blokes doing exactly that!
I reckon I've seen that path before in a nightmare - what the hell does that say about my mental state?!
