This is a decent shot of the cables - but they still feel a little steeper in person. See that part about 2/3rd the way up? That's the steepest part. The cables are 900-ft long with ~60-degree incline. When you're on them, they feel nearly vertical. A simple slip -> bye-bye. You hold the cables with a white-knuckled grip.

There's a pile of gloves at the bottom, left there by God-knows-who. I always bring my own gloves, but others say it's interesting to imagine who has worn the gloves before you - where were they from? Were they as scared as you are?
