He sure put his life on the line...
He must be really on edge. I know I would be wired if I had to do the footwork.

How do they get the rope to the other side? Rock climbers? Seems a little anti-climactic.

-1 for the cross
Well, that WAS Jesus. I think he's entitled.
No, it's the same thing that boxers and whatnot do.
"I'd like to thank god, for making it all happen!"
Completely ignoring the realized potential of human achievement. They earned that victory, without god's help. Ironically the notion that THEY were special enough for gods attention but none of their opponents were is rather self-absorbed. Nobody said the religious were consistant.
Or maybe he wanted a moody last image at the end of his video that fit the music. When Atheism becomes a religion itself, it's not helping anything. Don't be pissy and easily offended like the nutty religious folks are.
I'm not an atheist, but I see what you're saying.
I'm mostly fine with religion, its just when people do something great like defy death or win a boxing championship and they immediately defer all the credit of their hard-earned success to god, it cheeses me. Off.

Back when I was young, and a boyscout, we went out to a climbing wall place in central Indiana. It was run by a former rescue climber; a guy who would hike into the middle of some national park (I forget which) when climbers had been missing for a few days and then hike out with a crippled guy on his back. He told us that he always brought in a box of garbage bags because if someone really fucked up and fell from a great height, his corpse would look like "one of those watermelons Letterman is always tossing from the roof of his studio". In those cases, Rescue Ranger would do his best to clean the remains off of the rocks and then carry a hundred pounds or so of human paste back out of the park in garbage bags.
Rescue Ranger said he never intended to retire, but the pace at which people were killing themselves was increasing exponentially. When he started, he'd get a splatter case every year or two. Mostly his job was to help people tangled in their lines or with a few broken bones get back to civilization. By the time he quit (around 1999-2001 or so) rescues were rare and clean ups were what he spent most of his time on.
That's what I think about whenever I see idiots like this doing stupid things like this. I think about very nice men whose jobs have become carrying hundreds of pounds of human paste ten or more miles to the nearest road.
I think it's more about the funeral that will take place.
Don't worry, once Obamacare starts having it's way with us, they won't spend money picking up dead hikers anymore.
no, fuck you, don't do that shit here.

Achievement shouldn't be bound by convenience.
the music eerily fits the Rescue Ranger story. I don't know what's more depressing, the idea of a nice old man waking up knowing he's just going to end up scraping someone's guts into a Hefty bag, wondering why and how he got into that line of work in the first place when all he really wanted to do was try to help the living, or opening the bag for the family members to try to identify the corpse and the gripping horror of the realization combined with the stench of hot death hitting them at the same time.

At least the french dude uses a stick to balance himself, this is just really incredible and/or stupid..
And just when you think it can't get any more messed up he shows that he's carrying a camera. I guess his sponsor made him carry that thing so they can get some nice additional ogrish footage for the 50/50 chance that he slips.
