With every wobbly step Tyomka Pirniazov gets closer to his goal — and further from safety — as his camera shows the dizzying heights he has scaled.
The Russian man filmed the vertigo-inducing ascent of a 176m-high Russian skyscraper without the use of safety equipment.
With a camera attached to his head, Mr Pirniazov scales the tower of the Kotelnicheskaya Embankment Building, ignoring the climbing maxim of never looking down.
After scrambling up an unstable aerial with the help of ropes, he climbs to the top of a large sculpture atop the building without any safety gear.
"This is the most dangerous thing I've ever made in my life," Mr Pirniazov wrote after posting the video online.
"Please don't repeat under any circumstances."
Built in 1952, the Stalinist-style skyscraper was briefly the tallest building in Europe.
