This Video of Two Crazy Russians Climbing the Shanghai Tower Will Leave You With Sweaty Palms

Batshit mental thing of the week

14:04 14th February 2014 by James Carson

This video of two Russians climbing up the Shanghai Tower (the world’s second highest building) has been going viral for the past few days, and although we may be late party we felt it needed to be shared on MPORA.

We’ve been aware of other crazed goings on in Russia, such as Mustang Wanted, for some time – but this is the next level (also it’s not in Russia – they’ve gone international!). You’d think once you got to the top of the 650m high building you might stop – but no, these two opt on climbing up a massive crane as well.

There’s just a couple of times where they look down and I felt my heart move around in quite an awkward way. Get to the end, and you will likely have very sweaty palms.
