Moscow rufer climbed the Egyptian pyramids

Writes a LiveJournal blogger Vitaliy Raskalov: the day before yesterday returned from the hot Cairo. I want to tell you a little story about how we climbed to the top of one of the seven wonders of the world.

To get to the pyramid we had about 5 hours to hide from the guards in the tomb near the foot of Cheops shivered from the cold. We had to climb. It's now or never! Climb the stone slabs of the oldest structure of humanity to the sounds of prayer, a terrible echo rescatistas at Giza, realizing that that's what we'll be upstairs, fearing that we might see an armed guard, to admire from the spectacle, understand that you'll climb the only surviving wonder of the world, risking being crushed to death. It was one of the most intense nights of my life. A huge thank you to good friends who have been there and supported the crazy idea to climb the pyramid.
