No sooner has the backlash from Russian model Viki Odintcova’s Dubai stunt calmed down (more on that here, if you haven’t read about it already) and there’s another dangerous freeclimbing video doing the rounds on YouTube.

James Kingston, who has almost 430,000 followers that regularly watch his freeclimbing videos from all over the world, is a regular in Dubai.

His latest video sees him sneak into a construction site in Dubai, before running up the stairs to reach a nearby crane.

At first it seems that the 26-year-old wont attempt the climb, as the as the crane is dusty and he can’t figure out how to reach it. But after approaching it from a new angle, he decides its 'safe'.

Once up the main ladder he says, “That is a very steep crane. I don’t think that I’ve ever climbed a crane this steep.”

After climbing to the top he stays to watch the sun set, before making his descent.

At the end of the video he explains that he gets a lot of stick for his videos, but reiterates that he’s not encouraging anyone to copy him.

And he's right... After her stunt, Viki Odintcova was called in by Dubai Police who asked her to sign an undertaking not to endanger her life in Dubai again.
