DUBAI // An Emirati mountaineer who has twice conquered Everest has had to postpone a daredevil stunt on the world’s tallest tower – but only by a day.
But the company told him it would be too dangerous. Instead, he has been given the go-ahead to complete the stunt on January 1.
“The fireworks are already fixed so it would be dangerous,” said Mr Al Memari, 34, from Fujairah. “I was trying to get a window of two or three minutes to jump, but they said that would be difficult. Any small mistake can change a lot of things. So I’ll be doing it on January 1. I will do it in the evening to avoid the sun.”
Mr Al Memari will scale the glass facade with the aid of ropes, and take breaks at 15-minute intervals. More info
