For a hiker, I have a few issues with heights — mainly where sheer, death-creating drops are involved.

I’m getting better — while I still have trouble making the descent on Strawberry Peak‘s Mountaineer’s Route, I only had moderately severe leg-shaking while going down the Mooney Falls ladder in Havasu. One trail I will probably never do, however, is the Camino Del Rey in Spain.

Besthike dug up this first-person video tour of the hundred-year-old crumbling cliff-side walkway, and it’s guaranteed to give you at least two or three “OMG, no!” moments while you’re watching it.

… or maybe it will make you a little more confident in tackling those less terrifying ascents you’ve been putting off.
