Burning Man - in the Mouth of the Coyote

That's me, at the top of the giant Coyote sculpture by Bryan Tedrick (bryantedrick.com).

I am in the mouth of the coyote, and you can see its ears behind my face. It was a fun and easy climb.

I heard that several people got injured on the Coyote (broken arms / wrists and what not). No-one died. Initially the coyote head could spin. I think many people got hit by the giant metal ears, This was the dangerous part especially if you didn't realize the head could spin. After taking several people to the hospital, they put a sign "Don't climb - Seriously", and locked the head. People kept climbing it anyway, since the sculpture was designed to be climbed. Later, the sign was changed to a more adequate "Climb at your own risks".
