Click Here to view El camino del Rey

Originally built in 1901, this walkway now serves as an aproach to makinodromo, the famous climbing sector of El Chorro.

If you are afraid of heights this will certainly get your heart pumping.

Wow,
I thought Angels Landing in Zion National Park was kind of narrow. Al least the trail is maintained there.
Looks like this one could crumble right out from under you. I hike a lot so I think if presented with the opporutunity I would still have to go for it.

I can guarantee you the trip was made in a much longer time than just over 6 minutes and everyone is tied off with carabiners.(You can see the cabling on the side and if you watch closely you can see the others unhook to ket the cameraman go past.) With that being said...the only way I could do any part of that is if Sacs was leading me...AND I would prefer a second Sacs behind me too! ...oooh yeah..it would take me three times longer in real time - AT least!!

Well, I almost had a heart attack just watching it. I only closed my eyes once. People are crazy!

If you think watching the video is bad, how would you like to have been on the construction crew who built it in the first place? Now THERE are a bunch of people have more than a few screws loose.

Looks like a trail for those who have an intense Death Wish. Wonder if they have earthquakes in that area?
