I'm positive at least a few of them are now since you guys always high-five when you get the crane dirt on your hands. I don't know how one can do that without being scared. Hell, I freak out just getting on the roof of my 2-story house Anyways, good job and always be safe, if you know what that word means

WOW, awesome video. Watching it towards the end made my legs feel weak. Gotta have balls and a stomach of steel for that performance.

Man you are just amazing, i can't imagine what you feel being there on the top of crane. Surely a moment of total freedom.For such things life makes sense.

That is truly breathtaking. I mean just watching that! I wish I could do something like that. Not to mention the amazing photos.

But I wonder how on earth they managed to climb up and then come back safely without being noticed or detained? What about police, site security and all that? We could say that Chinese construction sites are not that strictly monitored for trespassers but they did the same stuff in a number of countries where security is probably more strict. They are not hiding their identities either. And that's not a one-off but something that seems to be a very serious hobby performed in numerous locations in the world. Or are authorities typically very lax towards such stuntmakers?

And what offences could they attribute to those guys? Trespassing in a construction site? Not a big deal I guess?

I don't even really consider myself to be afraid of heights, but man, these pictures and that video made my stomach hurt. Good lord, those cranes are high up.
