followed by comments about harness

 
Replying to an old post but for the record, the safety line is tied onto a poorly-fitted climbing harness and seems to run under her arm up to the cable. So if she fell, she'd get spun around but probably wouldn't slip out of the harness altogether. (enormous version here)

By the way those planks look slippery.

"The West Virginia Ordnance Works (WVOW) was an explosives manufacturing facility constructed during World War II just outside Point Pleasant, West Virginia. Occupying 8,000 acres along the eastern bank of the Ohio River, the WVOW was built specifically for the production and storage of trinitrotoluene (TNT). At its peak, nearly 500,000 pounds of TNT were produced here each day and stored in a massive array of concrete igloos. The site was officially declared surplus and closed in 1945, after which time much of the land was deeded to the state of West Virginia for the creation of the McClintic State Wildlife Management Area..."
igloo

"...In May 2010, one of the remaining concrete igloos unexpectedly and violently exploded. Government officials were brought in to investigate a number of igloos that were being privately leased to local businesses and citizens. After issuing several dozen search warrants, they discovered 14 separate igloos had been storing hundreds of thousands of pounds of unstable, heavy explosives. Due to the potential risk of another explosion this area was closed off to the public and remains under 24-hour surveillance. No remediation solution has yet to be determined."

I read it as saying that the private renters were using the facility to store their personal explosives.  I suppose they should be commended for not just putting it in self storage units.

You think someone would have noticed after 65 years.  The photographer's site doesn't mention them finding explosives there, but his photos are from 2009.  
The bit about the explosion and subsequent closure was found on this other site.  I couldn't confirm those findings elsewhere (yet).
