Hello: I am in a dilemma. There is a short story about a man who is on a mountain top. He makes the public believe that he is suicidal and is going to jump....when in reality, he is tied up there by his boss each day in order to gather a crowd of potential customers.

I am not positive, but the title is something like Man on the Mountain...or Man on the Mountain Top.

For some reason, I thought it was a translated Russian story or play. I also remember seeing what appeared to be a Russian name.

Can anyone help me with an author and/or title?

Thank you very much.
