Going down is much harder as you can't see where your feet have to go so clearly. There are other physical reasons why it's harder to go down to.

It is an old rule of climbing that the way down is much more difficult than the way up. Interestingly also many animals have this problem, so fire-brigades often have to rescue cats from trees.

Haha, he's just fantastic.
I don't think anyone else will ever be able to claim they climbed the world's tallest building, unnasisted and without harnesses...in the rain !
