Folks enjoying extremely risky climbing

Do you like climbing? Do you have a crazy smile on your face when you are somewhere high? Then you will love two young Russian folks Vadim Makhorov and Vitaliy Raskalov, who were probably so bored that they started climbing the most towering structures in the world.

All this idea of climbing came with a passion about taking pictures. Few years ago they took a picture with their phone camera, they liked it and decided to buy a real camera. But why they just don’t take pictures of flowers and nature with feet on the ground? Too boring.

They like challenges and that’s why they picked Shanghai Tower in China, 650 meters high tower, still under-reconstruction. Shanghai Tower is the second-tallest tower in the world surpassed only by Burj Khalifa in Dubai. (source)

“Aware of the strict Chinese law, we prepared carefully and picked an appropriate date, the Chinese New Year day,” Rascalov said. According to his words, security was less watchful, cranes didn’t work and people were on vacations.

They got to the crane at around midnight, first it took them 2 hours to get on the 120th floor by foot and then they were waiting 18 hours for better weather on the top of the building. I am surprised they didn’t change their mind…

Of course authorities don’t share the excitement with them and they often running into problems with law. They were arrested when they climbed pyramids in Giza or while ascending to the top of St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague.

While climbing they don’t use any climbing tools, gears, safety belts, nothing! They just have their cameras and a courage. Let’s see where they end up next time!
