Would you want to dangle 4,700 feet above the Grand Canyon to "wash windows?" Surprisingly, many people do want that job. Watch the video as workers go about their job making views crystal clear for vacationers.

Spring cleaning required 5,000 feet of rope and six technicians to both rig and clean the glass bridge as spectators walking on the glass watched from above. The technicians were wearing Vidcie cameras on their helmets that streamed live video to engineering managers and assisted with the logistics and safety of such a high-wire job.
