Residents in Barcelona Saturday watched with horror and amazement as a young man climbed a 33-story tower unaided.

George King climbed the iconic Agbar Tower without ropes or safety equipment.

The 20-year-old Englishman climbed 470 feet before making his way back down the building where he was met at the bottom by police.

King said he hoped his performance would help lift spirits during the Christmas holiday season, which has been marred by the COVID-19 pandemic.
