For me, heights are a problem. I’m not alone, though. Acrophobia, the fear of heights, is the third most common phobia. Vadhim Mahora and Ritaliy Raskalov, though, are two men that don’t have that problem. In fact, they love heights. So much so, they broke a handful of laws just to climb to the top of the tallest skyscraper they could find.
Vadim and Ritaliy were traveling through China with one terrifying goal in mind…
They wanted to climb to the top of the Shanghai tower.
It is the 2nd tallest skyscraper in the WORLD.
Understandably, most people might think these guys are a little nuts.
They chose to attempt the climb during the Chinese New Year, when they knew security would be lax.
So, they broke in.
Then, the two climbed 120 stories on foot.
Once they reached the top of the building, they slept and waited for good weather.
As soon as the weather was clear, they climbed to the very top of the crane that was perched on top of the tower.
The views were absolutely stunning.
Are your palms sweating yet?
At that height, you would be able to feel and SEE the building swaying below you.
I might need to lie down for a while.
You have to give these guys credit. They broke a whole bunch of laws and traveled the world to do something that terrifies me so much, I’m sweating just typing this. Source: Vadim Mahora & Ritaliy Raskalov Share their feat with others, people need to see this awesomeness.
