Indian Spiderman Defies Death
Posted on November 14, 2009
Many of us wish we could emulate the spider-enhanced physical prowess of Peter Parker, known more commonly as Spider-Man, but not many of us have the guts to scale a wall without the aid of a safety net, a harness or wings.
Enter Jyothi Rai of India. Unlike most individuals, who are content spending their lives with two feet firmly planted in the safety of the soil, Rai enjoys spending his time climbing the walls of the Chitradurga Fort, a large stone construct located in the Chitradurga District of Karnataka, India.
Using the spaces between the stones as footholds and effortlessly hanging by his feet at a height of upwards of three hundred feet sans safety harness or anything to land upon should he slip. If he does, here’s hoping one of the many tourists that come to see him daily will try and catch him.
