Hi guys!

Recently we’ve had no time to post things and stories neither to the website nor to our blogs. Not because we forgot about them, but because we are constantly coming up with new projects. Today I’d like to show you our new video from China. Yes, it’s China once again. And yes, ironically enough it’s once again the tallest building in the world.

For more than a year ago we’ve climbed Shanghai Tower certainly not expecting the resonance and the amount of feedback we’ve got. And so, that amount of feedback led us to an idea of making a tradition of roof toping new skyscrapers all around the world. Today’s hero of attention is a new financial center still under construction and is situated in Shenzhen, China. Right now its height is about 660 meters and that makes it the second tallest tower in the world. Right after Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

This time we went through a thorough preparation as we knew that not all predecessors who tried to conquer it had the luck to succeed. We were quite certain that the guards of for the moment tallest building construction would have a clue that there are some Europeans out there willing to climb that building. Climb and, of course, make a video. They certainly were not willing to let us get to the top (literary) but hey what is there to stop a good plan and determined guys?

Our chosen time was once again a Chinese New Year

So well, that was easier than the Shanghai Tower, at least because we didn’t have to sleep our way up to the top for 18 hours on the construction territory… But it was still, frankly saying, just plane awesome! Well, no more descriptions and explanations, just check it out for yourself.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
