This real-life daredevil can’t wait to test the limits – if there are any – on the world’s biggest building, the Burj Khlalifa Dubai.
For now, Carlos Rengifo will settle for wowing his social media followers and anyone who is lucky enough can catch a glimpse of him in person in his native country of Venezuela.
The 27-year-old has been practicing the death-defying stunts for 11 years now without an ounce of worry.
Any fright that may exist is immediately quashed – nothing can stand in the way of achieving his ultimate goal.
‘Fear is like positive energy, it equals your dreams, that thing that you are after that you want,’ Rengifo recently told Univision. ‘Negative energy, let’s say speaking of fear, is what paralyzes you.’

Rengifo started out performing stunts in the streets of the Venezuelan capital city of Caracas as a teenager before he graduated to much greater heights that would sink a regular person’s heart.
His Instagram account has viral videos that show him doing a backflip on the ledge of a building that is still under construction. He shows off his inner Spider Man abilities by scaling up and down the side of a residential building.
For Christmas in 2022, he treated his followers with a short clip of him slowly walking along the edge of another building that was being built. He stopped at the corner and leaned forward, catching a city’s busy roadway surrounded by trees with a sea of buildings on the horizon.
A short clip from October 2022 showed him riding a bicycle on the ledge of another Caracas tower.

One follower expressed doubts that the footage was real.
‘It is edited it is not real,’ they wrote.
Another user chimed in: ‘What it is to have no value and appreciation for life.’
Free from the restraint of any safety gear, the Venezuelan has pulled off some tricks at Caracas’ Torre Parque Central, a complex that features housing, commercial and cultural developments.
Other stunts have been successfully carried out at the Torre David, an unfinished skyscraper.
At the end of the day, it is all possible, Rengifo says, because practice makes perfect.
‘There is no time to think up there because you are supposed to train for a month or two months to do the trick,’ he explained. ‘But if you arrive at the indicated place at 60 floors, 100 floors, whatever, you have to consider what you are going to do, because if you arrive and think, you will freeze.’
