    Default Cool Rope News

    It's neat as heck and something I had thought about every time I drive by it.

    On a side note, I was fortunate enough to see the top stone once. It was from the inside while we were on a stalled elevator call there. Neat, but not as neat as this article.

    Saw that on the news, interviewed the (adorable bordering on cute) Park Ranger lady that was up at the top with a tour group when the earthquake hit.

    I bet the first half of the decent was amazing, the second half would depend on how comfortable the harnesses were seeing that they were taking their time inspecting and all.

    Here's a link to a short video of one of the engineers getting blown away from the monument and around a corner by high winds.
