James Kingston is a free runner and an avid parkour enthusiast, but that’s not what makes him a borderline crazy person. Kingston climbs some of the world’s tallest structures without a harness, armed only with his GoPro camera and some serious courage. That’s what makes his particular brand of insanity unique.
This video of him climbing the Wembley Stadium Arch is a fitting introduction.
Just think about climbing structures like this without any means of protection, or even a backup plan for when things go awry.
If this isn’t enough to make your palms sweat, you probably don’t have a soul (or you’re actually James Kingston).
The adventurer revels in the inherent danger of his favorite pastime.
Fortunately for us, he documents the vast majority of his climbs.
Now that’s a selfie I can get behind!
Kingston recently crossed climbing the Eiffel Tower off his bucket list and became the coolest person of all time in the process.
But now he has a new goal. He wants to climb the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.
I don’t know about you, but this makes my hobbies feel way less awesome. If you want to keep up with James Kingston’s adventures, be sure to follow him on YouTube and Instagram! He shares more mind-bending stunts every week.
