Tall buildings: so hot right now. Another group of daredevils from Hong Kong and Russia (always from Russia) have taken on some of China’s highest skyscrapers and posted these insane pics online to prove it.
Two of the urban explorers come from Moscow while another, identified in Chinese media as Dennis Liu, is a high-rise photographer from Hong Kong.
The intrepid group appears to have scaled skyscrapers in Shanghai, Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Nanjing, among other spots around the world, without safety equipment. Netizens identified one of the buildings as the Zifeng Tower located in the latter city.
The three also climbed the Shanghai Financial Center to snap a truly sweat-inducing selfie.
A staff member at the building told reporters he no idea of how they snuck up to the top without anyone noticing, however, they wouldn’t be the first ones to do so. A number of thrill-seekers have set their eyes on China to capture footage from the terrifying (and very illegal) heights of its many skyscrapers.

Last year, a duo called OnTheRoofs (also Russian) managed to pass security personnel to scale the unfinished Shanghai Tower, a stunt that made headlines ’round the world. They later hacked a Hong Kong’s skyscraper billboard to read “WHAT’S UP HONG KONG”. Casual.
