Man Climbs Trump Tower In New York City Using Suction Cups

A 20-year-old Virginia man seeking an “audience” with Donald Trump used large suction cups to scale the outside of Trump Tower on Wednesday for three hours, reaching the 21st floor before being hauled through a window by police.

The climber – a young, white male with long brown hair and muttonchops – wore a backpack and used a harness and rope stirrups to fasten himself to the side of the 58-story Manhattan skyscraper, above Fifth Avenue.

The man used four suction cup-like devices, each with ropes attached for him to stand on. The building’s windows were apparently too dirty for the cups to attach to, as he frequently stopped to clean the windows before attempting to attach to them.

Police officers smashed windows and broke through a ventilation duct in an attempt to block his progress. Officers also lowered themselves toward him using a window washer’s platform.

For a long time, the climber played a slow-motion cat-and-mouse game with officers, eluding them by methodically working his way across the facade and the angled corners of the building. The chase ended dramatically just after 6.30pm.rs smashed windows and broke through a ventilation duct in an attempt to block his progress.
