Scaling some of the tallest man made structures in the world with absolutely no safety equipment doesn't sound like fun to most of us, but for a few thrill seekers there is no other experience like it. Scaling skyscrapers and buildings in cities is an illegal activity, but these climbers normally plan the times they will make their ascent to minimise the risk of getting caught.

Luckily for us whilst they are up there they have time to take photographs from the very top. These photos offer us a spectacular view that we would otherwise never see. Just looking at these photos is enough to make you say nope.
