A video released last month on YouTube stars a climber identified as “chernobro” scaling a chimney-like pole extending from the top of a Shanghai skyscraper. The video, filmed with the help of a drone by “k3rkis,” is a familiar mix of jaw-dropping views and panic-inducing terror.

It is a bit of a shame that the sky was so smoggy and grey that day. We suppose that it helps if you climb a building higher than the clouds, like the Shanghai Tower. Back in 2014, a Russian daredevil duo climbed all the way up China’s tallest skyscraper when nobody was looking, inspiring a wave of rooftoppers to scale some of China’s tallest landmarks and bring their video cameras along.
