Video: Watch as two guys climb the 632m Shanghai Tower without safety equipment

If you’re afraid of heights then you might want to give this one a miss…

The Shanghai Tower stands at 632m making it the largest building in China and the second largest building in the world. The Burj Khalifa in the UAE is the only other building to surpass the Shanghai Tower in height, but these two lads from Russia still thought that it would be a great idea to climb the massive structure without any safety equipment… or permission.

Even the Shanghai World Financial Centre, the building that looks like a bottle opener, looks tiny in comparison to the height that the two lads eventually climb. 

After reaching the top of the building the two daredevils in question, Vadim Makhorov and Vitaliy Raskalov, go one step further by climbing the crane that sits atop of the Shanghai Tower. In total, the pair climbed a whopping 650 meters.

The stomach churning, foot tingling, vertigo inducing action kicks off around the 1:30 mark.
