Meet George King. He free climbed one of Europe’s highest skyscrapers in Barcelona on Friday without any ropes or safety measures.
Crowds watched as the 21-year-old British free climber made his way to the top of the 381-foot Melia Barcelona Sky Hotel in the Spanish city.
This was not a stunt approved by the city however. As he was coming down, King was arrested by the police and presented with a fine.
King said “When I was at the top I felt that I was in another dimension of bliss. When I met the police on the way down my head was still in the clouds.”
The feat earned King six months in a young offenders’ center for breaching a civil injunction taken out by the owners of the building.
