Climber "Projects" Trump Tower in New York

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.
