Ukrainian Daredevil Scales Seoul’s Lotte World Tower

Ukrainian daredevil Vitaliy Rakalov scaled the still under construction 555-meter Seoul Lotte World Tower this past weekend.

Rakalov uploaded two photos on his Instagram account, one of them a bird’s eye view from the top. His photographer Vadim Makhorov also joined him on the climb.

Known for their death defying videos, including one of scaling the Shanghai Tower which got them banned from China, the pair actually allegedly missed a poster of themselves which banned them from the construction site — not that it mattered.

The two managed to sneak past security in the early morning hours sometime this past weekend though Lotte officials commented they don’t know how or when they got to the top of the building.

They plan to release a video of the climb soon on YouTube according to his Instagram account.
