Daredevils Climb 558ft London Crane In Stomach Churning Footage

A couple of daredevils filmed themselves climbing up a 558ft (170 metre) crane without any harnesses to see the sun rising over London. You can check out the video here:

The pair risked their lives to get to the top of the crane to watch the sunrise, but claim it was ‘definitely worth it’. 

The anonymous climbers say they were able to get in and out of the site with ‘no problems’ and claim it was actually a pretty easy climb. I think we’ll just take their word for that.

The video shows the two thrill seekers scaling the crane in Stratford, London, in the early hours of the morning one day last November. 

In the clip, one of the men can be seen standing just inches from the edge of the crane while casually scrolling through his phone, while the other is looking straight ahead over the skyline as the sun rises.

The pair then perch themselves right on the edge of the crane - past the red obstruction light - so they can film the sun as it rises over London. 

One of the anonymous climbers said: "It was definitely worth it. The sunrise was by far one of my best with all the different colours.”

A drone managed to capture the sunrise, before zooming towards the two men who point and wave at the camera. 

The pair remained on the crane, which is believed to be the highest point in Stratford, for half an hour before climbing back down again.

"It was a very nice and calm climb with just amazing views and colours.

"The climb down was easy too and we got out of the site with no problems."

Despite the danger involved, or maybe because of it, the clip has attracted a lot of praise online. 

Commenting on Instagram, where the video was uploaded, one person wrote: “So sick.”

Another wrote: "Wowwww. Madness."

A third joked: "You guys don't really like the ground huh."

Others said it was simply ‘epic’ or ‘beautiful’.
