Video: Some things, like cooking or watching terrible movies, are best enjoyed in the company of a significant other — or casual sexual acquaintance, no judgements here. Personally, climbing over 600m up to a rickety crane overlooking Tianjin, China doesn’t seem like a romantic activity so much as a way for both people to plummet to their deaths. But hey — do you!

Angela Nikolau and her boyfriend Ivan Beerkus were sent by Travel Ticker to Tianjin, because it’s currently home to the tallest construction site in the world. They successfully scaled Goldin Finance 117, seemingly without being fined or arrested. There are certainly easier, cheaper and less dangerous ways to put a spark back in your love life — might I suggest flowers? A new sex toy? Anything but this? — but not for the discerning adrenaline junky.

Please tell me they at least screwed on the crane.
