Frightening climb to the cable-stayed bridge on the Russian island

If you like the adrenaline in the blood, then certainly read further about illegal ascent of the world's largest cable-stayed bridge on the Russian island. Cool, but very scary!

We had to detour through the village nearby. There are only a few houses, but they are inhabited. Huge hills, slippery, next to the ocean and the huge bridge ... A few hours we bypassed the village trying to come to the pylon from the bottom ... choose the most close to the bridge, it became clear that you can only get through the checkpoint where the calls in construction machinery and are working. Little rested and assessing the situation, our confidence was suppressed, but hope lived at the expense of open door in the pylon. We had only to pass about a dozen security guards and the workers do not get caught.
Successfully passing the checkpoint, we safely reached the pylons. We had to wait for some time that to make sure that we do not attract attention by the place back, we began to wait. At the door, went in and out of the pylon workers, and the guard was playing phone. Five or six booths, but in the form of only two people who are engaged in some business. Around full of workers. We share them to the white and orange hard hat. In the white managers usually work, and therefore wait until the majority of them will go into the van may drink tea.
So we sat for almost half, or even two hours. Finally convinced that we have not noticed even people from a passing car back and forth, it became clear that all the shit all busy.
Time to go.
After leaving the shelter without any problem, we entered the territory. Before the door of 100-150 meters. Heart just took off with excitement, because either we'll go right now, or have to do something. Step one. We pass by the guard carried away by mobile phone, pick up construction debris at the door ... and we're inside, we can only go up to 324 meters up the stairs. After rising for several spans up to a meeting across workers who greeted politely and laugh at us warning that after half an hour to start painting works, but we assure them that everything is under control and go upstairs.

As soon as possible we will climb up into the pylons terribly hot, and with no water, no nothing but the goal to go up. And now, after 324 meters we see the light, the light above our heads! This is it, the end. That for which we have traveled in the 10.000km! It remains to make just a couple of runs, just one flight, and we over. At the top of the world's highest suspension bridge.
Bridge above the clouds! Huge seems unreal bridge! Beautiful view of the ocean and a circle. I do not believe it, it's a great feeling when you want to scream with delight, I want to embrace the working holidaymakers, but you can not. Everything you need to keep in yourself, otherwise you may suspect. Maximum seriousness on his face and a couple of questions work pretending that we're here on business. As soon as possible to take one, two, three shots, here they are, here they are megobayty for which had to be done 10.000km. And all 20 minutes of pleasure and 324 meters high, 5 minutes again ran up the stairs ...

We decided to go back through the second output, and it was a big mistake.

Somewhere in the middle of the recognized us strangers. It was necessary immediately to do something, go through the foot or to go to the track. I do not know which option is correct, but we went on the road, where they were caught by a police officer, but after 30 minutes we were safely released and wished good luck.
Another cool place in Vladivostok is a power transmission line (110m), which is located on a small island.
