    "With nothing but a safety harness". No, I think you'll find that's a rope wrapped around his backside.

    the guy looks like he has a body harness on with a umbilical rope, so if he slips he'll fall about 10 feet and faceplant into the cliff, but he should live...

    I've done roped access before and i have sat in some pretty dubious places hanging up speakers with 'nothing but a safety harness'.

    I like how the bloke in the blue shirt and Marigolds has a hard hat on, leaning over the side. If he falls and lands on his head...
