They definitely have outside help. There's no way they crossed that cliff without the crew helping them. You can see the cuts in the film where they received help. Remember, there's a whole crew there probably 10 or twenty experienced men. These guys are making a joke out of dangerous situation. Young kids are going to try and copy them and get hurt bad. There no different than Steve Erwin.

Our Mother Nature no matter how dangerous could be, but always remains the most attractive and beautiful existence of all! Alone, two or more - it is always fun and joy to have an adventure, which is suitable and beneficial to me and to the society where I am visiting. There are so many ways to be productive to all through adventurous tours. Such as two wonderful individuals in this video. Job well done!

These dudes are brave. I could neva, just looking at what they’re experiencing through a screen is enough to give me anxiety.

Hey, Swiss person here! Don't worry, the alps are gorgeous and the people are very helpful. Don't be afraid to speak English with everyone. Also, if you're coming for a week, get a public transport pass, it's the best way to get around by far (our transportation network is excellent) and make sure to visit the major cities. Zurich, Bern, Geneva are all within a few hours of the alps. Also, since you're here in December, try some Glühwein. It's wonderful and a tradition here. Also watch out where you get your Fondue, some places tend to try and scam you. I wish you the best time in this country.
