Quite a climb


Two-time U.S. rock climbing champion Sierra Blair-Coyle scales a 33-story high skyscraper in Songdo, Incheon, on April 24 using only one of LG Electronics’ cordless vacuum cleaners.

The Korean consumer electronics manufacturer posted a 2-minute video on YouTube yesterday of the 22-year-old rock climber scaling the 139.9-meter-high (459-foot-high) building demonstrating the suction power of the LG Cord Zero Cykings.

“When I first heard about this project, I thought, ‘Is it even possible?’” the rock climber can be heard saying in the video.

An accompanying clip shows the climb from Coyle’s perspective. [LG ELECTRONICS]
