Fake Or Real? Two Russians Daredevils Climbed Shanghai Tower

shanghai-towerBEIJING – It was Chinese New Year Day (Jan. 31) in Shanghai and the much of the city had emptied out for the week-long holidays, including most of the construction workers and security guards at the unfinished 2,100-foot-tall Shanghai Tower.

Just after midnight, two daredevil friends, Vadim Makhorov, 24, from Russia and Vitaliy Raskalov, 21, from Ukraine, snuck past the remaining guards. Their goal: to climb the world’s second-tallest building and record the experience for everyone to see.



Armed with GoPros and DSLR cameras, and evading security, the pair scaled all the way to the top of tower, even climbing higher, to the end of a construction crane.

This week, they released a thrilling, vertigo-inducing video that is quickly going viral.

“I’ve been on a lot of roofs,” Rasklalov told ABC News from Bangkok. “But this was the most beautiful. When I saw just the two other buildings sticking up from the clouds, it was like flying in a plane. It was [expletive] awesome!”

Raskalov and Makhorov are at the forefront of an increasing popular craze among Russian youths called “skywalking,” or “roofing.”

    I am the co-founder of JustCBD company (justcbdstore.com) and I am currently trying to broaden my wholesale side of business. It would be great if someone at targetdomain give me some advice ! I thought that the best way to accomplish this would be to talk to vape companies and cbd retail stores. I was hoping if anybody could recommend a trustworthy web site where I can get Vape Shop B2B Mailing List I am already considering creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the very best option and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
