An extreme and irrational fear of heights is called acrophobia. Acrophobia is a type of specific phobia. A fear of falling develops naturally in all human beings, and comes about when you start to crawl. But acrophobia is an extreme fear of heights, to the point where you can't cross tall bridges, or go to the top of tall buildings.
