VIDEO: Terrifying 200m crane climb in Dubai



You may recognise the name James Kingston. He’s built a huge internet following by scaling tall buildings around the world without a safety rope. The parkour specialist has been in Dubai a few times performing death-defying stunts, and just days ago he returned with another shocking video.

In the latest post the young British man climbs “the most dangerous place I have ever explored, which is a 200 metre crane beside an extremely unsafe looking building.

“It’s been nearly a year now since I was last in Dubai. I had to come back, it’s probably my favourite place. The weather’s always good. There’s so many places to explore and so many things to climb,” he says at the start of the video. “In fact the last thing I climbed when I was here is this very building. But I did it at night time and it’s probably one of the scariest things I’ve ever done. Just because you’re like walking through this pitch black building and you’ve got weird noises… It’s just the craziest place.”

But just when you think this video is a throwback, he says: “This is the top of the building… And then we’ve got this.” After pointing the camera at a huge crane above Dubai’s skyline, he checks his shoes are dry and makes the terrifying climb. It’s almost too scary to watch.
