British free-climber managed to conquer on of the tallest buildings in UK.
James Kingston is the first man who stood on the White Arch, which is 400 ft in height. Previously, the man managed to scale other world’s highest buildings.
It took about 3 months for James to get the permission to climb the building. The 24-year-old had to get approval from 30 safety professionals due to security concerns.
Kingston was attached to a wire during the stunt in western London. As the weather was quite windy, the daredevil’s stunt was a bit hampered. But, according to James, it was worth it as views, visible from that point, were stunning.
An incredible view – one of the best I think I’ve ever seen. Just because England is my homeland and it’s rare to get such a view like that in the UK
About 4 years ago, the man had a fear of heights. With a “lot of patience and determination” he managed to fight it and became one of the most known daredevils in the world.
Reporters asked Kingston why he does it. The answer was quite simple: “Because I love it, it’s quite simple really“.
In November, James scaled The Princess Tower, which appears to be the second tallest building in Dubai.
He performed a back flip from the Moscow Bridge in Kiev and was taken into custody by Ukrainian police.
The popularity came to the man after the video of him hanging on one hand from the Cambridge crane.
