As you pass round each pillar, the whole of your body except for your hands and feet are over black emptiness. Your feet are on a slab of stone sloping downwards and outwards at an angle of about thirty-five degrees to the horizontal, your fingers and elbows making the most of a friction-hold against a vertical pillar, and the ground is precisely one hundred feet directly below you.

If you slip, you will still have three seconds to live.
The Night Climbers of Cambridge, 1937

You're alive until the instant you're dead.
