This daredevil free climber certainly isn’t scared of heights as he scales a huge 140m mast, without any ropes!

The 42-year-old, from Sweden, who goes by the name, FreeSolo, started climbing when he was just 13-years-old and made it to the top of a 125m mast in his hometown of Karlskrona when he was just a teen.

FreeSolo said it had been a childhood dream to make it to the top of Mount Everest and since then his interest in heights has continued to ‘peak’.

But it’s safe to say that this Swedish Spiderman has gone further than scaling mountains and now climbs for the sheer thrill.

FreeSolo said “What I most love 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 that something will go wrong, it’s the fear that essentially saves your life.”
