When it comes to heights, having a healthy dose of fear is completely natural. It is also linked to the fear of falling, which serves as a protective mechanism for most of us. However, some people seem to be fearless, pushing the boundaries of safety and even risking their lives by climbing to the edges of rooftops, rocky mountains, or even on a windowsill to reach a dirty spot on the ninth floor.

Today, we would like to present you with some of the craziest images from all over the internet that Bored Panda collected of adrenaline enthusiasts reaching unnerving heights. These experiences, which have either been photographed by others or documented by the daredevils themselves, can seem like an unattainable adventure for regular people, not to mention people with acrophobia (the fear of heights). So whether you are actually afraid of heights or simply are not a fan of putting your life at risk, these images will serve you as an adventure you would never take but could enjoy from the safety of solid ground.

Currently at #19 this one would be the first I could get behind IF IT WEREN'T SNOWING. I love snow, but that roof must be slick as an oiled sheet of glass

Provided those harnesses are actually being used and are clipped up, this is the one I'd be okay with.

Ok. I've rock & mountain climbed in Colorado when I was stationed out there. This one could absolutely be done safely.

That the structure isn’t strong enough and a hundred people walking down at once will make it fall away.

Yeah. This is expert level mountain climbing. That said, notice she's actually roped in with a belay down below. While she should be wearing a helmet for multiple reasons (falling debris and possible slip & head wack), this could be safe.
