A CLIMBER has given thrill seekers a bird eye view of what it is like to scale a 140 metre mast.
The daredevil – who goes by the name of FreeSolo – uses a point of view shot to film as he makes his way up the post.
The footage was taken in Karlskrona in southern Sweden and shows the stunning views of the surrounding area.
FreeSolo, 42, said: “I started climbing when I was 13-years-old.
“My first climb when it comes to buildings was a 125 metre high mast in my hometown.
“As a child, I dreamed of climbing the world’s highest mountain Mount Everest and my interest has only grown stronger over the years.
“What I love most with climbing is the feeling of calm and inner harmony that spreads in the body.
“When it comes to fear, it’s very rare that I will be affected within the climb.
“When you get scared something went wrong and then it’s just the fear that saves your life. But if I encounter two big spiders, I’m definitely very scared.
“This mast is one I have climbed a few times and I love it because of the views and freedom when at the top.”
