This is the dizzying moment two daredevil urban explorers scale to the top of one of the world's highest buildings.

Video footage shows Dan Andrew and Will Sanderson – aka Urban Cowboys – enjoying breathtaking views at the top of the 101 storey Marina 101 skyscraper.

The lads from Holmfirth sneaked past 24-hour security and even braved barbed wire and 50ft drops to access the site of the still uncompleted tower.

Dan Andrew and Will Sanderson – aka Urban Cowboys – decided to attempt to get to the summit of the tower on the final day of their holiday to the Middle East country.

And Dan, 19, says that despite climbing more than 2,000 stairs and numerous vertiginous ladders to get to the top upon seeing the stunning views it was all worth it.

Dan, who runs his own production company with Will, said: “It took all my effort to get to the top – even a marathon runner would have found it difficult.

“The building has security on at all hours so we had to gain access by climbing a car park next to the Marina 101, then jumping into someone's back garden, before then climbing around a wall which had barbed wire on it and a 50ft drop below.

“But it was well worth it, the views were just incredible as you can see from the video. The only other building taller in the world is the burj khalifa which is full of offices so you can't really get to the top.”

Dan and Will featured in another video featured by the Examiner earlier this month which showed them sneaking into a luxury hotel in Dubai and taking a cheeky dip in its rooftop pool.

Footage showed them brazenly strolling in through the reception before making their way to the top of the 65-storey Millennium Plaza Hotel via lifts and staircases.

Dan said: “We go exploring wherever we can really, but climbing the Marina 101 has to be one of the best things we have done.

“We were actually staying opposite it and so it was teasing us the whole time we were in Dubai. We couldn't resist in the end.

“Now we're already planning trips to London for more stunts, and then looking to travel to Shanghai or Tokyo – they would be our dream places to go.”
