Drone footage: Mountain-biking the White Line trail on the cliffs of Sedona, Arizona. First-person footage. Cautious first-person footage.

Drone: I hollered "Noooo!" at the monitor

First person: I literally couldn't watch

Cautious cam: I hung in there OK for a little while

I'm fine watching wingsuit guys zoom through canyons and Danny MacAskill work his magic on castle walls, but I can't handle the Sedona biking thing.

Hard to believe I used to climb around on rooftops for a summer job without thinking anything of it. I can barely wash an upstairs window without getting the shakes at this point.

On edit: I think I'd be perfectly fine watching someone fall agonizingly from a lofty place. As long as it was Roger Goodell. All the way to the bottom.

The extent of my bravery now is that I might go 2 days without running back-ups on my PC, or I'll try a potato chip from a bowl without asking what flavour it is.
