Following the controversy surrounding the Russian daredevils who illegally climbed to the top of the Merdeka 118, it now looks like our world’s second tallest building is now attracting more thrill seekers.

American army veteran, Isaac ‘Drift’ Wright aka Driftershoots, took to his YouTube account to showcase how he and his friends had also scaled Merdeka 118, in a video published on December 30, 2022 (Friday).

In the description, he wrote, “A while ago, myself and 3 other exploring friends made our way to Kuala Lumpur to climb and photograph Merdeka 118, the second tallest building in the world at 679 meters tall. The journey was long and difficult and full of challenges”.

“A number of attempts had already ended in prison time for certain individuals so we knew we were up against heavy odds. The trip ended successfully and its a gift to be ending the year showing the footage. This video is an artistic expression of freedom done in and for love, I do not encourage anybody to recreate the actions shown in this video.”

In the video, Isaac explains that this trip to Kuala Lumpur would be their first international journey. He and his friends were then seen donning construction vests and helmets, presumably to ‘blend in’ while sneaking into Merdeka 118.

They also cut open the barriers blocking them from entering the stairwell of the building and climbed through.

It appears that in the end, all 4 of them managed to climb to the very top of Merdeka 118.
