I'm a bird! I have no fears!

Adding to my vote comment - I am a rock climber, mountaineer, expedition leader and former climbing instructor. That being said, I have a healthy fear of heights. That may seem strange at first, but it has what has kept me alive over a 25 year period of climbing. A climber who is not afraid of heights is a dangerous one and one I don't want to climb with. I have had a few climbing buddies who lacked this fear who are now quite dead from climbing accidents; I do not believe this to be a coincident. I still get knots in my stomach if I am up a thousand feet up on an ice face and look down. That is healthy.

On rides like roller-casters and stuff I'm not afraid at all because your all strapped in. But with out any type of seat belt or protection id be very scared.

That is a wise observation Dilara. When I am climbing with anchors and a rope, I do not feel fear. Free climbing is quite different however.

I would never do that.

@BblackkBbirdd - I think I would see great fear in your eyes if I took you 9000 feet up an exposed and windy ice-arete.
