In the video, the woman slides down the rock face just inches from a sheer drop before throwing her hands in the air.

The person filming then pans out to show the city beneath which, while a beautiful view, is thousands of feet below the cliff edge.

The video, published yesterday, has had more than 114,000 likes although not many people thought it was a good idea.

People on social media said they were left terrified after watching the video, with Twitter user Sarah said: “I got anxiety just watching this.”

Another woman added: “My stomach went into my throat for a minute.”

Leslie asked: “How does she get back up without sliding? OMG, it’s so funny how a video can completely freak you out. My pulse was racing like I was on the rock. “

Another person agreed, commenting: “Makes me sick feeling just to watch this.”

Anita also said: “To risk her life just for a photo/video? She either has a strong death wish or she's crazy.”
