"Meet the monk who lives a life of virtual solitude on top of a 131ft pillar and has to have food winched up to him by his followers"

"Maxime, a 59-year-old monk, lives on top of Katshki Pillar in Georgia
He has to scale a 131ft ladder if he wants to come down
Followers winch supplies up to him because he only leaves the pillar twice a week"


Uh? Good for him? It's a good gig if you can get it? I don't know. Seems like a lot of trouble for nothing if you ask me.
