Thrillseeker Easily (And Illegally) Climbs Great Pyramid of Giza

Subscribe to TheFW on

If you’re looking for a rush, give this a try.

Eighteen-year-old German Andrej Ciesielski found himself in Egypt and decided to climb the 480 feet to the top of the Great Pyramid of Giza. Of course, doing so is not legal and cops were waiting for him when he got back down. They questioned him, but eventually let him go.

Ciesielski says his stunt grabbed the attention of people in the area:

Walking around in the complex I was waiting for the right moment to start climbing The Great Pyramid of Giza. When I started climbing a street seller was standing behind me but I didn’t care about him I turned around he laughed and I continued climbing.

At the half some people got attention on me and looked up to. That’s how the police spotted me. They shouted something in Arabic I think but I didn’t care and kept going while listening to music.

Making the climb wasn’t as tough as you might think, either. Ciesielski says he reached the top in eight minutes (although getting down took 20). So, it took 28 minutes to live a story he’ll share for the rest of his life.
