HAMSTERDAM IS HIKING THIS LITTLE HILL

Click it. I dare you. I dare you not to hold your breath.

Now, you don't have to do this without a harness as this crazy asshole is doing. But even then, you're still walking that cliff face with a 49 cent REI carabiner and two dollars worth of rope as your safety net if you lose your footing or that decades-old "path" falters.

And just a quick, but important, FYI for us raised in the safety-conscious U S of A: That path on that mountain is just one of many paths that are meant for anybody to walk on as part of a routine hike. It's the same to them as a standard thirteener path you can take on any weekday in Colorado and be home in time for dinner. It's the same as taking Kilimanjaro's 20-foot-wide path to the top. The Chinese don't care for your safety-addled sense of normalcy. No special permits, no climbing lessons, nothing required but a few renminbi and some courage.
