- They laid their eyes on the skyscraper after admiring its unique architecture
This it the stomach-churning moment a pair of adrenaline junkies ran up a 274ft skyscraper overlooking West Ham stadium.
Chilling drone footage shows the pair racing each another up Stratford One building’s slanted roof in east London without the use of ropes or safety equipment on November 15.
The pair, who wished to remain anonymous, run along the inclining roof before reaching the top of the skyscraper and looking down to the road below.
The duo, who planned the dangerous project over two days, said they laid their eyes on the Stratford One building, which is used as student accommodation, after admiring its unique architecture last month.

During the clip, the pair run along a narrow section of the inclining roof before jumping over a metal bar and turning around a corner to reach the final stretch.
As the pair run to the top of the building – which was previously shortlisted as one of the UK’s ugliest buildings in 2014 – dramatic views of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park can be seen in the background.
The duo then place their feet at the edge of the building and look out towards the city skyline.
One of the climbers said: ‘The side of the building where we ran up was slippery but once we got to the final stretch it was fine, nothing too shady.’
The two urban explorers had scouted the area for a new challenge last month and laid their eyes on the Stratford One building after admiring its architecture.

The anonymous climber added: ‘It took us a while to get in the building but as soon as we got in, we started the ascend.
‘I wasn’t scared at all.
‘It felt good to be up on a new roof and we had new views too. We had the West Ham Stadium as a view’.
Following the stunt, viewers took to social media to share their thoughts, with one saying the scenes reminded them of a ‘great movie trailer.’
One user wrote: ‘This is so beautiful to watch. Reminds me of a great movie trailer.’
While another commented: ‘Truly majestic! Miss being there.’
Another person added: ‘So hard.’
The video, which was shared to Instagram, has left social media users at the edge of their seats
