Not content with gazing upon the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World during a recent trip to Egypt, 18-year-old Andrej Ciesielski climbed to the top of the Great Pyramid, also known as the Pyramid of Cheops, filming his travail.

Scaling the 4,500-year-old structure took around eight minutes, according to teenager from Munich, who enjoyed rarely seen views from the zenith of the stone monolith.

Speaking to BuzzFeed, Ciesielski said he waited until police were not looking, and then dashed up the side of the monolith while listening to music on his earphones. He was, of course, arrested after he descended.

“I went to the police station for maybe one hour,” he said. “They asked me many questions about why I did this, but they let me go.”
