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

Well...looks like he has a book collection, electricity....and all meals provided......

Now all he needs is a ham radio antenna....up there....


I'm sure not I'd like going up and down that ladder. The place could use an elevator....

Didn't one of the James Bond movies have a location just like this?

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.

I enjoy Mail Online. One could spend an entire day there going from link to link of interesting things...such as this. (I'd hate to be the guy on the left.)

well I reckon housing is free, he gets a workout using that ladder, not sure if he gets food free or not.

I hope something good comes out of his doing that.
