Russian Fools Climb Tall Tower

Here you will find a video of two Russians breaking into the Shanghai Tower, which when completed will be over 2,000 feet tall (the Empire State Building is 1,250 feet tall, for comparison), and climbing it all the way to the top of the scaffolding. The first two minutes are just the pair climbing stairs, and, like, the stairs don't have handrails but it's not all that dangerous otherwise so you can just skip to 1:55 or so to see them climb above the smog and mist of Shanghai and crawl up the scaffolding, which seems VERY dangerous and scary.

Not to diminish the pants-crapping bravery these guys demonstrate, but there must be people that do the same thing every day to build that ridiculous building. Also, the spires sticking out of the Shanghai smog/fog was pretty damned impressive.

And here is someone climbing what looks to me to be a solid wall of no-thank-you-get-me-down-from-here in Mexico, without ropes:
