Dubai Roof Toppers Climb 360-Meter Building (Almas Tower)

If heights aren’t enough to get your heart racing, James King is adding breaking and entering into the mix. The latest video from one of the most daring urban explorers in Dubai will get you on the edge of your seat. He rose to internet notoriety and international news when he scaled the 101-storey Marina Towers.

His newest video takes on the 68-storey Almas Tower, a super skyscraper, in Jumeirah Lakes Towers. The daredevil stretches his luck right from the start by boldly walking past guards. With security just one of his problems, his feat is remarkable in more ways than one. A close call doesn’t end as badly as you think.

You might want to think twice before “hanging out” with this guy. Literally hanging off tall buildings and cranes might not be everyone’s choice of pastime. But King shows that other people are as daring as him by bringing a friend to the highest point of the Almas tower. The building is the previous holder for the tallest building in Dubai until the Burj Khalifa took over in 2009. (Barely) avoiding security, stepping over sleeping workers, climbing endless ladders in the spire, this video reveals more obstacles he goes through besides heights.
