He’s part of a growing group of cityscape adventurers, known as urban explorers, who go to places most wouldn’t, and explore neglected buildings, mazes, old railway lines and “obstacles of days gone by”. Harry says he and his friends were inspired by the pics of Russian and Ukrainian “skywalkers”, amateur stuntmen who hang off extremely high buildings, having gone viral.

"We go up to enjoy the experience and to take photos," Harry says. "As far as hobbies go, it's just as dangerous as other extreme sports like motorsports, skiing or snowboarding. Harry has conquered the 160 m tall “Walkie Talkie” building, the 225 m “Cheesegrater” and the unfinished Pinnacle.

"I feel perfectly safe whenever I climb because I have been training for a long time. I have been freerunning for seven years and I think that has given me strength and, importantly, balance.” "When I am at the top I am constantly making sure my hands have got a tight grip. I do not move until I know I am secure."
