James Kingston climbed the Eiffel Tower without a harness with a photographer buddy. The whole video is one dizzy ride.

Millions of tourists visit this world-renowned landmark annually – all of them boarding the boring old elevator after waiting for ages in a queue, often under the blistering Paris sun.

But not this YouTube adventurer! Kingston and photographer Esty Tomas decided to scale the 984-foot structure on their own, under cover of night. The pair used the night to their advantage, so as to avoid security. Starting the ascent at 1am, they began filming.
