When you're that high you no longer understand heights and you just focus, it's weird. I worked on the edge of the grand canyon on the skywalk bridge, and you look over and it almost seems innocent and peaceful. You still respect it, but it has always been that 30-60 feet range where I have that pucker factor.

These guys aren't wired in the head properly.

I'm in ok shape but my legs would tell my brain to F-off about halfway up and they would have to rescue me

I've had apprentices lock up at 15 feet, I remember being there when I was an apprentice before. When you climb rebar you have 2 lanyards and 1 position hook. The first time I went up in the air and things are swaying around all of the journeyman were yelling at me to let go, because the position hook keeps you in place. This old timer told me I should ask for a 3rd arm for Christmas. After a week of that I became a vertical guy, and now I get to make fun of my apprentices while keeping them safe. I've actually had to help guys that were in my same class down walls after they locked up.

Heights, you learn to not be afraid of it, but you respect it, once you lose that respect that's when bad things happen.

Probably the worst feeling ever is scaffolding. They call it the 2" heart attack. You're walking along paying attention to your work, and even though you're safe you perfectly step off of lapped OSHA planks and your foot goes down exactly 2" and you instinctively grab something thinking you're falling.

But can she catch one laying on her back and not use her mouth?

Same thing while framing houses, except we called it the 1/2" heart attack. Walking a floor or roof and your foot steps down that extra 1/2" and your mind just says, shit we're falling.
