‘Drinking Alcohol Is As Bad As What I Do’ – Daredevil Who Climbs Skyscrapers.


A man who has been filmed hanging by just two fingers 700ft above London, claims what he does is no more dangerous than drinking alcohol.

Elvis Bogdanovs, who has terrified and amused in equal measure during various stunts, can be seen removing one hand from his support and hovering hundreds of feet above the ground. 

The latest video of his work shows him in action in at a 40-storey high rise building in Stratford, London – with the 20-year-old appearing completely unfazed as the busy night time traffic appears like dots in the distance. 

Not content with his round of pull-ups and press-ups he then proceeds to do a handstand hovering alarmingly close to the edge.

Elvis, from Aberdeenshire, Scotland, said: “I do it because it’s my passion. Everyone has their passions so if they’re able to relate to that feeling, they can understand why I do it. 

“For me it’s about the art of climbing itself, the climb, and the reward of the view in the end. 

“To describe what it’s like dangling 700 feet plus in the air is practically impossible – it’s difficult to find the words that accurately describe the feeling. 

“There’s actually no rush of adrenaline anymore, I’ve done it for so long it feels like walking down the road. 

“However, there is pure satisfaction and enjoyment. “What do I say to the people who warn against it? Tough sh*t.

“There are far more dangerous thing that people do and don’t complain about, practically any extreme sport or racing.  “If people drink alcohol, they’re already just as bad as me. 

“Everyone has their passions and this is mine, just a tad more extreme than most.  “When you break it down to the fundamentals, it’s not even that bad.”
