Two Russian climbers, Vadim Makhorov and Vitaliy Raskalov, who have gained a reputation as fearless photographers after climbing some of the world’s tallest buildings are at it again–this time taking on the tallest building in China, the Shanghai Tower, which is currently under construction. The Shanghai Tower measures in at 2,073 feet (632 meters) tall, making it the second tallest building in the world behind Dubai’s Burj Khalifa:
The two risked their lives, as no harnesses or other safety precautions were taken other than planning around the weather. After spending two hours scaling the building, they were forced to camp out on top for 18 hours while they waited for better weather to begin the descent. [video]
