The climb was not the group’s first in China. Around the same time last year, On The Roofs climbed Shenzhen’s Ping An Finance Center. The 600-meter-tall building is the world’s fourth-tallest.

In 2014, the group collaborated with some Hong Kong-based videographers to document their climb in the heart of the city’s downtown. The inclusion of drone footage among the top of the city’s forest of skyscrapers provides some excellent angles. And, as an extra touch, the group rewired the building’s multi-story electronic billboard to remove the sponsor message and replace it with their own.

But it was an earlier 2014 climb on the Shanghai Tower—the world’s second-tallest building—that gained On The Roofs the most attention and inspired them to make such daring climbs a tradition.

Since then, the group has clambered over buildings and monuments worldwide, from towers and bridges in Russia to Christ the Redeemer in Brazil.
