Idiots Climb The Eiffel Tower For Laughs

The Eiffel Tower is the most famous and one of the most heavily-guarded structures in Paris. For a fee you can hang out inside of it, but its upper reaches are not legally accessible to the public.

Just Two Guys Dangling Off A Crane Like It's No Big Deal

Video: Most people see a tower crane and wonder what it’s building. These guys see a construction crane and think the logical thing to do is to to climb it all the way up, walk all the way across and then just hang out there while literally hanging off the crane. The crane basically becomes a playground to them. Monkey bars, a tight rope, a ladder and so forth.

Terrifying Climb Up The Old Spire Of The World's Tallest Church

Video: It’s not as scary tall as climbing oversized skyscrapers, but climbing churches can be just as frightening because the buildings are so much older and the spire is totally not meant to be climbed.

This Video Of People Climbing A Skyscraper Is So Damn Stressful

Video: Shun Hung Square is a 384m tall skyscraper that’s the third tallest building in Shenzhen, China. It’s really, really tall.

Going Down A Ladder Off The Side Of A 280 Metre Tower Is Scarier Than Climbing Up

Video: Don’t look down. That’s the only advice that kind of works when you’re up high on a 280m tall structure. But what if you’re descending down a ladder on the side of said 280m tall structure?

And yet, the only way out is to go down. So you have to keep looking down.
