Thrill seekers dodge gun-toting cops to scale 480ft-high Egyptian pyramid in dead of night
The duo from OdditySwitch say they climbed over a 20ft-high fence and crawled through the desert before they reached the base of the 4,500-year-old Great Pyramid of Giza
Three thrill-seekers dodged gun-toting police and barking dogs to scale a massive Egyptian pyramid in the middle of the night.
The trio say they climbed over a 20ft-high fence and crawled through the desert before they even reached the base of the 480ft-high Great Pyramid of Giza .
The daredevils posted footage of themselves climbing the crumbling 4,500-year-old tomb on their
The monument is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex in El Giza, in Egypt, and is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
One of the daredevils told Mirror Online: "It was a very intense, adrenaline fueled night indeed, that none of us will forget for the rest of our lives."
"We did have to be very careful, both going up and coming back down, because it is very, very old and some sections were eroded and crumbled as we grabbed on to it. Plus it was the middle of the night.
"The wall and fence that we had to climb to get into The Giza Plateau totaled around 20ft.
"After that we had to work our way over to the pyramids, by crawling through the desert, whilst avoiding numerous armed police guards, on foot and in patrol cars, while they patrolled the site.
"There are numerous fixed spotlights along the way and not to mention dozens of stray dogs on site that all barked as soon as we came anywhere near them."
The group have also posted footage of themselves climbing the 235m-high Moel-y-Parc Transmission Tower, near Denbigh in North Wales and the abandoned TSS Duke of Lancaster railway steamer ship, which is currently beached near Mostyn Docks on the river Dee in nort-east Wales.
They explained: "We do these climbs and little expeditions because we love to climb and love seeing the world from different heights.
"We also do it for the adrenaline rush and to push our boundaries."
