An unknown climber attempted to (illegally) make what would likely have been the first ropeless aid ascent of Trump Tower in New York City. Using a method that is typically associated with fictional espionage, the man was ascending via five high-grade suction cups and two makeshift etriers. Starting at 2:45 PM EST, he climbed over 10 stories in just under two hours, setting a strong pace. If he had been able to keep it up and avoid law enforcement, he would have topped out by 2:00 AM.
This is my favorite part.
As expected, the route has already been added to Mountain Project.
