Don't the instructions say not to stand on the top step of the ladder?

I think the guy on the ladder has more balls then the free climber...

Reminds me of a bit in Warren Miller's Storm, I believe, where they have footage following a skier through gorgeous powder on a semi tree-filled hill, and he says something along the lines of "if you think the skier is good, think about the cameraman skiing besides him with a camera to his eye and his head turned sideways."

Poor fellow! They've photoshopped off his rope, harness, and draws. :(

+1. I don't think I'd ever refer to Alex Honnold as a ball-less wonder.

Now they will need to add: "WARNING! DO NOT STAND LADDER ON A VERTICAL SURFACE"

"WITHOUT PROPER BELAY."

I suppose you just have to assume when the ladder is "on" or "off".

I want to see how they set that rig up. Probably took quite a while.

And hope the photog doesn't barndoor-swing. That'd be a hard bump.
