Woah. Things like this only happen in movies where the film culminates in a showdown between protagonist and villain, set against the background of an epic score and a historic monument. Well this isn’t a movie. Back in March, a troop of Russian photographers stealthily scaled the Great Pyramid of Giza and documented the unseen vistas from its summit. How did they do it? They waited several hours after closing time and hid from guards until they saw their chance. As one of the photographers would later point out, climbing the Pyramids is a punishable crime and can carry sentences of up to three years. Still, once they had reached the peak, it’s not likely that prison time was going through their minds.
