Crazy Russian Free Climbers Scale The World’s 2nd Tallest Building

On the much publicized growing list of things Russians are terrible at (planning Olympics, human rights, dog rights, elevators, etc.) something you’ll never see is “scared” — especially of heights. Vadim Makhorov and Vitaliy Raskalov are one of an unreasonable number of Russian urban free climbers who break into and dangle off of the tallest structures in the world. “The Skywalkers” as they’re known, have summited buildings from Paris to Prague to Warsaw to Barcelona, getting a ton of attention in return for giving absolutely ZERO fucks.

Today’s skyscraper: The 2,073-foot Shanghai Tower. Gulp.

    I watched that without maximizing the screen, even at a few inches in size the video made me sick. There’s no f’ing way I’d ever want to do that!
