18-year-old Andrej Ciesielski travelled from Munich to Cairo the other week so that he could climb the Cheops Pyramid, better known as the Great Pyramid of Giza.

Andrej managed to make it to the top of the 4,500 year old, 146 metre monument in broad daylight and within 8 minutes and remained at the top long enough to take some solid footage.
Not to mention some dope photos:
Andrej says the moment he made it back down he was caught by police and taken for questioning:
I was told that I did risk prison, although on balance I thought the photos would be worth it.
It was absolutely surreal standing on top of one of the wonders of the world and something that I will never forget. I wanted to experience Egyptian culture and I definitely managed that.
I guess he got away with a slap on the wrist considering he’s around to tell the tale. Though surely they can’t be that strict on the no-climb rule if there’s no barriers or security around the pyramids? You’d think there might be considering it’s the oldest remaining Wonder of the World.
Respect to Andrej but don’t forget mate — the Russians did it first.
