Two Russian climbers stretched the notion of being a daredevil to its most extreme limits by clambering up the second tallest building in the world without ropes or any climbing gear.

According to Metro.co.uk, Vadim Makhorov and Vitaliy Raskalov filmed themselves with head-mounted cameras breaking into and scaling the Shanghai Tower in China, which at 632m is smaller than only the Burj Khalifa in the UAE.

Getting to the top of the building was not enough for the hoodie-clad adrenaline junkies, whose feet literally dangle above the clouds, as they had to climb up the crane atop the building, meaning they reached a truly dizzying height of 650m.

“My hands are wet [from condensation]” was their reaction on getting to the top. (ANI)
