This time the guys from On the Roofs take us to Korea for some high flying tower climbing.
They captured the attention of the world when they scaled the heights of the 1,260 feet (384 meters) Shun Hing Square Tower in China. As if that was not enough, the duo from the On The Roofs series recently took over the Korean peninsula and climbed the region’s tallest building- the Lotte World Tower.
Perhaps to show the world the best vantage point of exploring Seoul’s cityscape and the Korean peninsula in general, daredevils, Vitaliy Raskalov and Vadim Makhorov, climbed atop the 1,800 foot (555-meter) building, which is still under construction but already the tallest building in the region. Even though they ran into problems with the building’s employees and security personnel, this daring pair somehow found its way the top of this building and revealed to the world pictures and a clip taken from atop.
“We never thought that we would one day go to the Korean peninsula with the main aim of climbing a skyscraper,” the duo said.
Even though they admit that it was a very dangerous challenge, they take pride in the fact that their daredevilry paid off considering that Lotte World Tower is currently the sixth tallest building in the world.
