    Well actually it looks kind of sturdy, but kind of scary too. I'd be holding onto those chains very tightly.

    There are a lot of pics of this. There is a restaurant at the top. Makes me cringe just looking at these photos.

    Not for me. But good on those that do this.

    That'd have to be some pretty damn good food.

    In 1995 I was working with the PICC ( Peoples Insurance Company of China) sorting out a messy claim for them - perfectly legit claim but they had presented incorrectly to their re-insurers.
    As a "reward" for the 24hr shifts the team I was working with to get the claim in before the time "cut-off", the company set up a trip to Mt. Huashan .
    There were about 15 of us.
    I had no Idea what was involved until we got there !!!
    When it was explained at the pre hike briefing I s*it myself !!
    I cant even climb a bloody ladder without suffering from Vertigo.
    I cried off - citing age - arthritis(genuine) and size -and OK OK OK Im a fat bastard! !
    This was greeted by sighs of relief ( disguised as disappointment) by the others
    I was installed in a nice little Chinese coffee shop where the old boy who ran it spoke some English ( turned out he was some sort of Liasion man between the Americans and Mao Zedongs mob during the Tokyo raids by US bombers from an aircraft carrier during WW II ) and with my embryonic Mandarin and his broken English had a lovely interesting time !! Got a bit legless on some sort of spirit made from millet and had a constant supply of nice - but unidentifyable - little snacks!
    When the kids ( eldest was about 25) returned they were knackered!
    I was told "sotto voche" by one of the girls that the team leader literally froze on what I assume was that bit on the planks - and literally shit himself before he could go on !!! ( what a loss of face - megga !!!)

    I felt my bowels quiver just lookin at the pictures on that link !!!

    Can you imagine that sort of thing being considered in the "nanny state " that we call UK
