It's absolutely mental.

My in-laws live near to it and are always threatening to take us up there as a "treat"

My God my back is all tense just watching it! I would never be able to walk that; I'm terrible with heights now (never used to be)

Yup! Must be the scariest 'footpath' around.
In the UK the Grib Goch footpath up to Snowdon in Wales has it's moments, as parts are along a knife edge and in good weather it's not the norm for a safety rope.
If your keen on adrenlin rushes, it's worth a try!
It'll be better that any 335i or 335d

Reminds me of a via ferrata walk I did in France a few years ago, although that clip looks a lot more adrenaline pumping.

As long as your tied into the wall via that cable your pretty safe. If you get the chance I'd highly recommend it.

Its been illegal to walk that path since 2001. Its in such a bad state, still doesnt stop adventurous types having a go.

How about an E90 attempt???

Looks like some of the paths we use to get to "secret" surf spots. Try it with bare feet, a wetsuit and a board under your arm... ;-)

Okay maybe not quite that bad!

Awesome

I've done stuff like this in the French and Austrian Alps in the past.

Carjack, Crib Goch is one of my faves, have you done it in winter with snow?

I've done Grib Goch 3 times. Twice in good weather and once in late autumn with the army (there was no turning back!) in high wind & cold rain. We were roped-up with our feet down on one side with hands on the ridge inching along.
It was my most scariest experience ever, of the great out doors! It took so long, that halfway along the ridge, darkness descended and we returned down the railway track to Llanberis.
Have down some summer snow & ice crappon work, with guides (3 to 1) in the Stubai Alps, Austria, using the mountain huts. We had good weather and it was absolutly super!
I can remember the first walk up from Solden to out first hut, the Siederland (about 2800M). It took about 6 hours, but some of our party were actually on their hands and knees going through the door, wacked out! They just were not fit for the trip!
Cheers!
