A recent National Geographic cover picture of some guy standing on a very narrow ledge in Yosemite. It is clearly dangerous to the point of flirting with suicide, and there is tacit approval of this. Because it's outdoorsy and cool and nature and all that. I doubt we are going to see many NG covers on less-fashionable suicidal pursuits.
They know their audience, after all.

I don't get the suicidal thing at all. I just see a guy standing there. Perfectly natural. I'd enjoy an opportunity to stand there. Looks like a nice way to spend an afternoon.

Gotta watch that projection stuff.

Where's the climbing gear? How did he get on the ledge?

The ledge rises to the right of the picture--presumably he walked down from the upper right above where the cameraman is perched. IIRC, the article was about people who don't use climbing gear.
You wouldn't get me on that ledge even with climbing gear.
