This really does look like the proverbial Stairway To Heaven. It must take an insane amount of courage and concentration to even contemplate such a feat as climbing that. The precarious Stairway To Heaven Mountain Ladder in Gosaukamm, Upper Austria, is used by daredevil climbers throughout the world. The ladders are made from steel and rope and stretch high up into the mountain, as if reaching the clouds..
Sebastian Scheichl, from Salzburg, took these astonishing images while friend Johannes Jank took on the perilous feat of climbing the ladder along with another 2 fellow climbers.
Sebastian, 23, said: “I was so excited, I couldn’t believe my eyes at that moment.
“It was the first time we’d climbed this ladder and I was scared for sure but we were secured.
“There were harnesses and we had proper climbing gear on us.”
Check out the actual video footage of this incredible ladder climb below. This footage was also taken by Sebastian Scheichl.
As the video pans out you start to appreciate the scale of this thing, it looks truly terrifying. One strong gust of wind or one shaky step and you are dangling 100’s of meters above the ground. It must take nerves of steel.
