The Closest You'll Ever Get To Climbing The Eiffel Tower

Nov 9, 2015 By Houston Barber

James Kingston is an adventurer famous for doing things most people would consider completely insane. In the past he has climbed the Wembley arch, taken a selfie on the very top of a crane, and scaled a 200 meter radio tower. So what do you do to top all of that? Kingston’s answer is to climb up the Eiffel Tower while filming it all on a GoPro. 

To do this, he waited till 1 in the morning. When he found a break in the security, he started his ascent. Armed only with a camera and a friend to keep watch, Kingston climbed up one of them most famous landmarks in the world. In the middle of the night, Kingston and his climbing partner were spotted by security and hid in a crevice until the coast was clear. At 9:00 a.m. they were spotted again by tourists going up in a lift. Eventually they gave themselves up to security and were let off with a strict warning.
