They got in before closing and began to wait for darkness to climb on top.

The climb was very dangerous, many rocks were just crumbling under the feet. The height of the pyramid is almost 140 meters.

Standing up was dangerous, because guards could notice them. Under the law of Egypt, the trespassing can be punished with imprisonment from 1 to 3 years.

From the comments on social networks:

Crazy guys. The last thing I want is to deal with the Egyptian police. – Mutter

Vandals! – sobaka_by

You guys are nuts! Pictures are awesome! – timon_timonich

There is a very good reason that people are not permitted to climb the pyramids. These people should be prosecuted.
