City Climb, the highest open-air building ascent in the world, is giving New Yorkers a taste of the thrill in the air.
New Yorkers and thrill seekers alike can scale outside of a skyscraper more than 1,200 feet above the ground. Once climbers get strapped into their safety harness, they can ascend to the apex of 30 Hudson Yards, above the edge.
The fearless guide will lead them up an eight-story skyscraper staircase of 160 stairs at a 45-degree angle. A group of eight people can join the climb at a time.
City Climb is a ticketed experience and is open every day of the year. Kids ages 13-18 must have adult supervision.
After the climb, head down to the Edge for some bonus tourist views.
