Although you’ve probably seen some people pull off some pretty slick moves on chimneys before, you’ve never seen anything like this.
For many, climbing a derelict industrial-size chimney is low on today’s to-do list, but for daredevil Flaviu Chernesco, it’s just another day on the job.
The chimney in question is a 919-foot behemoth in Pitesti, Romania, one of the tallest structures in the country. According to Mashable, the chimney was built as part of a coal power plant that was never completed. It has sat incomplete and falling into disrepair for years.
Now you’d think that would be enough to make most people walk quickly in the other direction, but luckily for us, Chernesco is up for the task. And, just to spice things up, he decides to climb the chimney without safety equipment.
Watch the jaw-dropping video of the stunt to the end, it’s well worth it. Once you’re done with that, check out our photo collection of daredevils hanging out on skyscrapers (featuring Tom Cruise) and this video of what we’re betting is the scariest selfie ever taken.
