I have to admit, thought I'm not afraid of heights, I actually felt queasy watching this video.

You too? The closer he got to the top, the more nauseous I got. I told my wife. She looked at me funny.

I wouldn't be able to do it without a harness, and I'm not afraid to admit that. I can't imagine climbing one of those with winds in excess of 10 miles per hour (and/or lightning).

They're not supposed to either. The person who posted the video had a very bad error in the voice over narration. The PPE act of 1994 by OSHA does not allow any free climbing, anywhere. (Unless in a guarded/caged in area, i.e. a ladder with a anti-fall cage around it). All it takes one slip to go from up there, back down to the ground (and up by it again as you pass on through to the stars)
