In this hair-raising video, Russian daredevils Vitaliy Raskalov and Vadim Makhorov climb to the top of the world’s second tallest building, the 2,073-foot-tall Shanghai Tower. The duo finished their ascent by climbing the construction crane at the top of the building (the tower is still under construction), capturing a truly frightening view back down to earth. They’ve posted photos and a write-up of their stunt on Live Journal. Don’t try this at home kids.
