When you see these climbers reach the top of Lotte World Tower, a half-kilometre-tall tower that’s the tallest building in South Korea and taller than One World Trade Center in New York, there’s an ever so brief moment of peace. Wow, things look great from up here! And then it’s back to the stressfulness of watching someone do something as insane as climbing a skyscraper.
It’s somehow physically exhausting to watch a video of other people climbing. I get a shortness of breath, my knees start to disappear, and I can feel my heart beat faster and faster. Not a bad workout.
