Steep

The uppermost level of the central tower of Angkor Wat requires one to climb steep staircases of stones. The ascent is best avoided by those who feel dizzy with heights and unsure of their footing. Actually, the climbing part is easy. It is in going down when one's nerves are tested to the limit. The steps are too narrow and steep to be able to see where one's foot will land. Add to that some rain for slick. Nevertheless, there is always a willing crowd all too eager for the thrill.
