This Viral Photo Inspired Copycats, But There’s Something You Should Know…

Luis Fernando Candela trained hard at the gym for months leading up to his stunt, a rock climbing trick that seemed so extreme, only a crazy person would attempt it.

After all, the rock is 984 above the jagged beach line below -- and a fall from that high off the ground would certainly lead to instant death. Still, Candela managed to photograph himself dangling from this jutting rock, hanging on by nothing but his fingertips. What's more: He inspired others to do the same.

You're not going to believe what some people will do for a taste of adventure -- or at the very least, a great photograph.

This is Luis Fernando Candela. He claims to have prepared for this moment for months at the gym. The rock he's hanging from is 984 feet above the beach.
