Helmet Cam of Scaffolding Workers, High Atop the Washington Monument
Full screen recommended (although I had to look away more than once).
In addition to the dizzying heights, the guy who puts his foot up on the monument and yanks the scaffolding backwards totally freaked me out (0:25). Good lord.
Here’s a pretty interesting mention, from the people maintaining the FB page, about the spikes at the very top of the monument:
While watching this, I kept wondering how awesome it would be to be a part of this crew. Not because of the heights (though if I could still my terror for a moment, I’m sure the view was phenomenal). But because of how few people I think have ever seen or touched the top of the monument. And how few ever would, in total.
There are jobs, and there is this job. Pretty cool stuff (even if it makes me clutch my chair, and a little sweaty).
