The MOTH gets weird with (some) heights. I saw him stand on the edge of the Grand Canyon, while I stood a safe distance away! He says he trusts nature but not man-made, but he's fine climbing a ladder! We got in a gondola (the mountain type, not water), and his face went white when he saw how high we were going ~ so he sat on the floor, with his head under my coat. We got some funny looks :-D

I love spiders :-D
Not too keen on heights, but used to be okay.
As a child in Mevagissey, we (local children) used to jump off the cliffs onto the beach (avoiding the rocks below). I only realised it may have been a bit dangerous when the coastguard helicopter came to rescue 2 climbers climbing the very cliff we jumped off!!
So, when I can afford it, I intend to go abseiling :-D

I couldn't go in a hot air ballon though


I think my greates phobia is self-opinionated A*seh*les!

Spiders - but worse than that loud noises as my hearing is too accute. Phobia started when since a builder fired masonery bullits into the wall next to me at work one day with no warning. Everyone in the office levitated in the seats. :-S

I now carry ear plugs :-D
