Okay, I agree with most of the critical and objective opinions here on snotr, regarding these guys taking crazy risks climbing these towers. But how is this risk different than guys climbing dangerous mountains for the first time 100 or 200 years ago, such as Matterhorn, Himalayas, Mt McKinley, etc, test their bravery and their skills, many of them dying for their own cause. I'm not saying it is either right or wrong, I'm just throwing this out there, asking how it is different. Just a thought, that's all. :)

#4 It's different because it's in an urban environment and they have no idea who else they are putting at risk by climbing and potentially damaging and knocking off parts of the building, dropping their gadgets or even falling onto someone themselves.
It's one thing to do it on a mountain with other climbers who are aware of those risks vs doing it with literally thousands of unaware pedestrians walking below, who could never anticipate (and shouldn't have to) anything or anyone falling from these buildings. To take that risk and/or not care about that is both stupid and selfish and shows how social media platforms can encourage pointless risk-taking for the sake of bolstering someones ego.

#5 Dr. Ping, you made an important point, it's not the climbing itself, it's the danger they put others in. :)

7:42 Holy hell, thank God I'm afraid of heights and would never consider this. Sweating like crazy, I need a towel for my keyboard and mouse.

And to follow up with #5. DrPing’s comments

Professional and or serious mountain climbers in many cases, if they perished, their bodies were often left on the mountain usually because they could not be recovered and this was part of the risk that they undertook. In many cases a fatality or tragedy did not endanger others (for the most part - other than the team) because of the remoteness and inaccessability of the situation they occurred in. Urban clowns – not so much.

And that said, mountaineering has attracted more and more people due to guides and technology (and money) and this has brought larger numbers of less qualified people into places they really shouldn’t be. This increase in sport climbers has facilitated more rescue personnel who do put themselves in danger and mandatory evacuation insurance policies in many places. Granted the rescue people are also professionals so they will not put themselves in too much danger but it is a risky job.

FWIW, If you want a stunning look at the dangers and the conditions you should read Jon Krakauer’s ‘Into Thin Air’ about a doomed Everest trip. An amazing gripping read. I read it in basically one sitting. It was that good. He is an excellent writer. I could not put it down. You should be able to get a used paperback for cheap. You will not be disappointed.
