Munich native Andrej Ciesielski is no stranger to heights, occasionally ascending skyscrapers and generally tall structures for fun. He has documented his travels and daredevil antics on his YouTube page, which include Shanghai, Hong Kong, and a coastal town in Spain. 

The 18-year-old's latest edition takes place in Egypt, in which he casually climbs the Great Pyramid of Giza. Ciesielski said that it took him about 8 minutes to get to the top, and told BuzzFeed France that he accomplished the scaling by doing it when the police weren't looking:

I think the police shouted in Arabic to come down but I just listened to music and enjoyed the climb,” he said. “I went to the police station for maybe one hour. They asked me many questions about why I did this, but they let me go.”

At the summit, he was treated to a view unlike any other in Egypt.
