In Seoul on Monday, the South Korean police detained a British man who had just scaled 73 floors of the nation’s tallest structure using only his hands.

George King-Thompson, the man, is a well-known free climber. He had previously served a three-month prison sentence for scaling London’s Shard in 2019.

Over 90 police, fire, and emergency personnel were called to the scene on Monday morning after the man was seen climbing the Lotte World Tower. He reportedly made it to the 73rd floor of the structure without the aid of any equipment but was ultimately taken out using a gondola lift, according to the Seoul fire department.

At around 7:20 a.m. local time, he was spotted scaling the structure using nothing but climbing chalk. Even after the firefighters arrived at 8 am, he continued his attempt at climbing. The man was seen scaling the building in the video that was shot from inside a bedroom in the building.
