Would-Be Spider Man Attempts 30-Foot Wall Climb, Fails Painfully, Returns To Try It Again

February 21, 2018

NOTE: First video is not for the squeamish -- big fall. Second video is a successful attempt performed a few months later.

These are two videos of poor decision maker Damien Pullinger attempting to free-climb a 25-30 foot wall like a backwards crab. The first video ends in disaster. In his own words while I dump everyone's Lean Cuisines from the breakroom freezer into the sink and take an ice-bath:

Attempted to climb between two walls but due to my slippery shoes and the fact it had rained 20 min before hand I failed to make the climb. I shattered my left heel and fractured the right heel other than that I have no other injuries and will walk again in a few months time. Enjoy my pain ;p


[then, after the successful attempt]

for all you haters out there. here is the win sorry if its too choppy. but i'm not dead and still ready to rock.

But why? I can't imagine there's any real fame or glory involved with scaling a wall like this, there's just some equally stupid idiot behind a computer making fun of you on a website. I can't imagine that's worth it. "I did it for myself." Well you certainly didn't do it for your poor mother, she must be worried sick. Think before you dumb. "Look who's talking." Look who almost had to have their jaw wired shut.

Keep going for the videos.

Thanks to Rheysis, who agrees this guy has a bright (albeit very short) future in a traveling circus.

    Took the fall as best as anyone could. I mean, it was dumb to try knowing it's slippery, but if he's cool with taking the damage and having his friend watch helplessly, then why not? It's not me in his slippery shoes.

  • Bling Nye

    Bullshit, the first one is the successful attempt, the second one he falls and dies.

    He ded.

    It's cool, he stopped his fall with his face. But he got back up there. Way to go, kid!

  • Doog

    You're never gonna keep him down. He gets knocked down, but he gets up again.

    ...You're never gonna keep him down. He gets knocked down, but he gets up again...

    Well played!

  • MustacheHam

    Thankfully it wasn't a direct fall...there's some buffer there to reduce damage. Could of been smart to have some padding at the bottom.

  • Doog

    Exactly what I was thinking, ''Put a damn mattress down or something!'' Then again we knew the fall was coming whereas he was apparently confident it wasn't coming.

    Watching that first video was torture. Knowing it's not going to end well, the dread just seeps in more and more with every foot slip that idiot has.I feel gross now.

    LD50 for falls is 10 feet.

  • Bling Nye

    I don't think you have a 50/50 chance of dying in a 10 foot fall... otherwise a lot more people would be dead, myself included. I was reading it's closer to 40-50 feet. Although it might be 10 feet if you're only counting head-first landings... I don't know if there's data that accounts for type of landing though.

  • The_Wretched

    Maybe that's for uncontrolled falls.

  • Bling Nye

    LD50 is 36-60 feet according to Rosen's Emergency Medicine - Concepts and Clinical Practice E-Book (Rosens Emergency Medicine Concepts and Clinical Practice) 9th Ed, by Ron Walls, Robert Hockberger and Marianne Gausche-Hill (2017)

  • Doog

    It kind of seems odd to have a range for an LD50, but then again there's a lot of factors like weight and I can't imagine they have it calculated to X Inches per lb.

    The amount of ultimately useless data they'd have to collect from various idiots/test subjects would be crazy.

    Question: I wonder if pavement hurts to land on from 20' up?

    Answer: Yes, yes it does.
