This impresses me on a couple of different levels

I have been to Corcovado a couple of times and am always impressed at the immensity of the Cristo Redentor statue. The view of Rio de Janeiro is spectacular from the top of Corcovado, and no visit to Rio is complete without the trip up...even if it does cost an arm and a leg to get up there.

I have also worked on a restoration crew and used masonry grinders and pressure washers to clean a building while standing on top of 40-foot scaffolding. I am not afraid of heights, but I think this would terrify me.
I wonder if the mountain is closed to tourists while this little project is underway. I also wonder how long such a project will take.
