Don’t watch this heart-pounding GoPro video if you are afraid of heights

The advent of video camera-equipped drones should have marked the end of humans climbing to dangerous locations to grab the perfect shot.

But CassOnline, a YouTuber who has broken into a number of high-profile English soccer stadiums, thinks he can do it better, and his latest upload will put you on edge like no drone video you’ve ever seen.

Check out the video of his climb below starting at 5:00:  

The GoPro-equipped videographer decided to climb on top of the Tower Bridge, one of London’s most iconic landmarks. He then scaled one side of the steep, U-shaped cables in what will surely cause anxiety among those who fear heights.

The video shows a stunning view of London from a place few others have gone. The young thrill-seeker drew a rather large crowd on the bridge deck below before a police officer arrived to put an end to this Fear Factor-like stunt.

CassOnline posted the video on Sunday and seemed to be good spirits despite whatever the cop may have told him when he climbed down.

“A massive shoutout to the officers who responded to whoever called the climb in, your response time was amazing & i have 100% faith in the safety of Londoners in this socio-political climate! Hope you enjoy!”
