Crazy people climb to the top of the world's tallest construction site without safety ropes

Don’t. Look. Down.

IF YOU HAVE  a fear of heights then you might want to look away now.

These crazy/brave free runners decided to climb to the top of the second tallest tower in the world (after the Burj Khalifa in Dubai) just for the hell of it.

The two, Vitaliy Rasalov and Vadim Makhorov scaled a new financial centre being built in Shenzhen, China, which is currently the world’s tallest construction site.


Oh, and because they’re free runners, they did it without any safety equipment.


This video shows the climb from their point of view, using GoPro cameras strapped to their heads. It starts slowly but then builds up to the two reaching the top of the 660-metre high building, with the wind swirling around them.

Don’t try this at home…
