While we often marvel at the efforts of climbers who go up a sheer rock race, there are so impressive climbs being done in urban environments as well. Take for example the one shown in this video, during which a couple of daring urban adventurers scale the 660 meter (2165 ft) tall Shenzhen Tower in China. While this is certainly a very different climb from what we’re use to seeing, it is none the less a challenging feat to reach the top of this building in what is certainly an illegal manner. The views from the top are pretty impressive though, and while I wouldn’t necessarily condone these types of activities, I can respect those who do them, and bring us great video footage of their efforts.
