POV Eiffel Tower Climb

by twistedsifter


Scale the Eiffel Tower with urban explorer James Kingston in this heart-stopping POV video. You can learn more about the harrowing experience in the YouTube description. I’ve included some of the pertinent details below:


…We decided to commit to climbing right up the side from the ground & see what happens. We started the climb at 1AM… It was clear we’d been spotted so we legged it down a few stories & found a couple of holes inside the framework… Hours went by with security going up & down with torches & they even turned on all of the towers lights during their search. The lights finally went off and the tower was ours again so we began the wait for sunrise. After a few more hours playing around on the tower workers & tourists started coming up in the lifts. We were spotted again around 9AM so we climbed down & met with security. We were handcuffed & taken to the local police station where we were held & questioned for around 6 hours before being released without charges (I also had to promise them I wouldn’t climb it again for 3 years)…
