No: Climbing A 1,500-Ft TV Tower With No Safety Gear

February 29, 2016


This is a video from Youtuber Urban Endeavors of some maniac climbing a 1,500-foot deactivated television tower with zero safety equipment. He doesn't even use the ladder, he climbs the outside like somebody who really doesn't care about living. Apparently the whole climb took over four hours. For reference, I would have fallen to my death within the first 15 minutes. What's the highest you've ever climbed without safety equipment? My record is 'into bed'.

Keep going for the video, then be thankful you've got your feet on the ground.

Thanks again to JD, who, for two tips in a row, receives two poor-quality shoutouts in a row. Weird how that works.

    'L'appel du vide' is weak in this one

  • Dani

    Chances are that this guy is not gonna die in bed.

  • I used to have like a 30 foot one of those outside my window. Great for... ummm... open-air recreations.

    I normally don't have a problem with heights, but 2:12 gave me that sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach...

    PROTIP: set video quality to highest setting, expand video to fullscreen, watch with face about 6 inches from screen.

    Awesome. :-D

    Fucking stupid.

  • Jason Christopher

    This dude is completely insane. Balls of steel.

  • Meh

    This was pretty boring, if he had jumped down at the end it would be slightly worth it.

  • MustacheHam

    That's a really sweet view.
    Although I had thought he planned to climb back down the same way.
