“I can’t describe it in words … It was really unbelievable for me. It was absolutely amazing.” That’s how 18-year-old Andrej Ciesielski describes his incredible, yet illegal, climb to the top of the Great Pyramid of Giza in broad daylight on Jan. 18.

Armed with a GoPro camera, “I just started climbing.” He took the first few steps quickly “so nobody would follow me and take me down,” he tells Business Insider. It wasn’t until he was about halfway up the 455-foot structure that police finally spotted him.

Ciesielski kept climbing and reached the top in about eight minutes. The view “was really, really amazing,” he says. Ciesielski took his time with his descent for safety reasons and was back on the ground in about 20 minutes, he writes. He was then taken into police custody.

“At first, they wanted to take me to the German embassy, but after a while I was released without anything further happening,” Ciesielski says.

 “Some people were really angry but I don’t care,” Ciesielski says of his climb. “I didn’t destroy anything. I didn’t hurt anyone.”
