Teetering along a crumbling walkway over 100 metres high, a group of intrepid climbers carefully inch their way across what has been dubbed the most dangerous path in the world.
And they're not alone. Adrenaline-junkies have been flocking to southern Spain to experience the 110-year-old El Caminito Del Rey before work begins to refurbish it next year.
Companies have now begun offering unofficial tours after a video of a walker tackling the hair-raising trail went viral on YouTube.
And you don't need to be an experienced climber either, the only requirements are that walkers should be at least twelve years old and have a good head for heights.
The trail, also known as the King's Pathway, was originally built in 1905 for workers to travel between two hydroelectric power plants but was closed-off in 2000 after two walkers fell to their deaths.
It snakes its way along cliff edges high up in El Chorro Gorge, thirty miles from Malaga.
Much of the one-metre-wide walkway is crumbing away with rusting supports, gaping holes, no handrails and sections that have completely fallen down.
A makeshift wire has now been attached to the rock face which walkers and climbers can clip themselves on to in order to have some degree of security - but many still prefer not to use any safety equipment at all.
Work is now due to start on an 8.3 million project to make the pathway safe again and attract more tourists to the area.
It will take three years to re-construct and will see the pathway completely rebuilt with handrails, protective barriers, lighting and a visitor’s centre.
One climber on the route last week said: 'It's a shame they're going to fix the path.
'It will sanitise it too much and take the thrill out of it.
'It's free for us to go on right now but I'm sure they'll make us pay to use it in the future.' (Daily Mail)
The world's oldest living conjoined twins have defied doctors' predictions and reached their 50th birthday.
George and Lori Schappell, who are joined at the head, celebrate their special day on Sept. 11.
And the pair are marking the landmark birthday with a trip to London.
Remarkably, the Siamese twins are able to live very different and separate lives, with Lori having had relationships and George — who was originally named Dori — deciding to live life as a man.
Lori is also a ten-pin bowling champion and George performs as a country and western singer.
Lori says: "When we were born, the doctors didn't think we'd make 30, but we proved them wrong.
"We have learned so much in the last 50 years and will continue living life to the full."
While Lori, who is 5ft 1in, was born able-bodied, 4ft 4in George suffers from spina bifida, which has caused severe mobility problems.
As George cannot walk, he sits in a wheelchair-type stool which Lori pushes so the two can move together.
George says: "Most people don't believe us but we do have very normal lives.
"We travel, tidy our flat and Lori has even had a boyfriend. Nothing stops us doing what we want."
The twins, from Pennsylvania in America, were born sharing 30 per cent of their frontal lobe brain tissue and critical blood vessels, meaning they cannot be separated.
The twins not only had to deal with their birth defect but George was hiding a secret torment from his sister.
He says: "I have known from a very young age that I should have been a boy.
"I loved playing with trains and hated girly outfits. I kept my desire to change sex hidden — even from Lori — for many years."
George came clean about his desire four years ago. He changed his name from Dori and began living as a man.
He says: "It was so tough, but I was getting older and I simply didn't want to live a lie. I knew I had to live my life the way I wanted."
George has not had a sex change, but dresses and introduces himself as a man.
Lori says: "Obviously it was a shock when Dori changed to George, but I am so proud of him.
"It was a huge decision but we have overcome so much in our lives and together we are such a strong team. Nothing can break that."
Lori considers herself a girly girl and does all the cooking for herself and George while he will do all the DIY around their flat.
Although the pair are both single, Lori has dated men. She says: "I lost my virginity at the age of 23 to my second boyfriend.
"When I went on dates, George would bring along books to read and, as we don't face each other, he could ignore any kissing. I don't see why being a conjoined twin should stop me having a love life and feeling like a woman."
Five years ago Lori was engaged, but four months before the couple were due to marry, her fiancé was killed by a drunk driver.
Lori says: "It was devastating and my heart is broken. (The Sun)

The bizarre internet craze of 'planking' is set to lose its cult online status to the increasingly popular trend of 'owling'.
Hundreds of young people in America, Australia and now, Britain, have taken up the new 'owling' craze.
It consists of crouching on one's haunches and staring into the middle distance, like an owl.
Participants then take photos of themselves and post them on Facebook or on other social networking sites.
Extra kudos is earned for those who do it in unusual situations.
The trend is a development of the popular craze of 'planking' in which people would take pictures of themselves lying face down in strange locations.
However, in recent months ‘planking’ has become increasingly mainstream – and thus less popular on the trend-conscious internet.
Last month the celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay posted pictures of himself planking – a development that prompted trend-watchers to declare the craze ‘officially dead’.
'Owling' is believed to have started in Australia within the last few weeks.
Indeed, it is so new that the Wikipedia entry for 'owling' describes the practice as being a term used in the Middle Ages to describe the ‘the smuggling of sheep or wool from England to another country.
Despite its relative youth, the owling craze already has two popular Facebook groups dedicated to it, onto which more than 1,000 people are listed as members.
Other social websites including Reddit also feature pictures of young people taking part in the craze.
The trendspotting site Buzzfeed has described 'owling' as a 'worthy successor' to planking. (Daily Mail)
A receptionist at a bank has lost more than eight stone after conquering a bizarrephobia – of sweat.
Tracey Stone, 35, walked less than three miles per year and 'freaked out' at the mere thought of exercise because of the irrational fear.
The phobia, which she developed in childhood, meant she piled on the pounds and it left her with 'zero' self-esteem.
At her heaviest, she tipped the scales at 19 stone and consumed 5,000 calories per day – more than double the recommended daily amount.
But in early 2010 Tracey overcame her 'nemesis' thanks to a course of hypnotherapy. She has now dropped from a size 18 to a size 12.
Tracey, who lives in Bristol, now weighs in at just 11 stone and controls her weight through gentle exercise and slimming aids.
She said: 'I’ve had a fear of excessive sweating since I was at school. It got to the point where I was literally not walking anyway through fear of breaking sweat. I freaked out at the thought of going to the gym.
'But now I feel happier and healthier after finally overcoming the nemesis that had haunted me for so long.'
The phobia of excessive sweating, hypothermosis, affects up to 1-in-200,000 people across the UK. (Daily Mail)
Forget tattoos, belly button piercings and Lady Gaga-style silicone implants - the latest craze in body modification is 'corset piercing' where metal rings are pierced into the skin and joined together with a ribbon to give a corset effect.
The 'decoration', which can cost up to £300, can be applied to any area of the body where the skin is loose enough to pinch in order to thread a needle through. Popular areas include the back, ribs and, in some cases, even the throat.
A blind pensioner who was told he would never see again has miraculously regained his sight - while kissing a photograph of his late wife as he prepared for bed.
George Hudspeth has been registered blind for 10-years after he was diagnosed withdry macular degeneration. He lost his sight completely one year ago and expected to live the rest of his life in darkness.
But last week his vision suddenly returned moments after he held a photograph of his late wife Sheila, who died in November 2009.
The former Squadron Quartermaster Sergeant was so ecstatic he stayed up all night until 5am watching television in case his sight went again.
It means the 76-year-old grandfather has seen his baby granddaughter for the first time following the incredible recovery, which has baffled eye specialists.
Mr Hudspeth, from Daventry, Northamptonshire, said: 'I want to tell the world because I am sitting on top of Mount Everest shouting "I can see."
'I can't explain it. I can't find the right words. I can see just as well as anybody else. It is truly incredible and I couldn't be happier.'
Doctors had previously told him that he would never be able to see again after the condition worsened last year. Both Mr Hudspeth's father and sister had gone blind through the condition.
But last Tuesday, the former serviceman's life changed when his sight miraculously returned. (Daily Mail)
