Jean-Michel Casanova scaled the outside section of 1,083ft-high Bailong Elevator yesterday in the Wulingyuan area of Zhangijiajie, China.

Casanova successfully climbed the 564ft outdoor section of the elevator without safety equipment

It took the French climber 68 minutes and 26 seconds to complete the 564ft challenge, shunning protective gear to wear only trainers, a vest top and jogging bottoms.
