The Ukrainian Climbing Wizard Who Will Make Your Palms Sweat

He goes by the moniker Mustang Wanted, he's a Ukrainian climbing wizard, and he has no fear.

In photographs that will make your palms sweat, Mustang Wanted is shown dangling by his fingertips from some of the tallest buildings in Ukraine and Russia -- without the aid of safety ropes, nets, or harnesses. It goes without saying: Kids, don't try this at home.

Mustang Wanted (he wishes to remain anonymous) reportedly gave up his job as a legal adviser to pursue his obsession with climbing. "Death is not the worst thing that can happen," Britain's "Daily Mail" quotes him as saying. "Everyone dies, but not everyone lives the way they want."
