EdgeWalk: The Ironworker Experience

Work as an ironworker requires quite the level of fearlessness. They are responsible for constructing (and sometimes deconstructing) all those bridges, high-rise buildings and assorted iron structures throughout the world. They can’t be afraid of heights because sometimes labor 37 stories in the air (see video below). These men and women rely on the traction of their work boots to get them safely through the day.

While this is most definitely a stressful way to make a living, some people believe the feeling to be thrilling. Case in point, the CN Tower in Canada is offering visitors the chance to walk along the EdgeWalk. That’s 116 stories in the air. Yikes!

To walk among the clouds, you must be 13 years old and weigh 75-310 pounds. For those teen interested in living life 1,168 feet in the air, their parents or guardians must give written permission. Curious about the experience? Check out the video below for a preview.
