Photos of the illegal Space Needle climb by a group that goes by the name "Shutter Subversive" online went viral last week, but many people questioned their legitimacy.

A new video has surfaced on YouTube by "ScrawledinBlack" as proof that this group really climbed the iconic Seattle landmark. The video shows climbers walking along the edge and climbing to the very top of the Space Needle.

 

Ten days ago, the group posted pictures to Reddit of different climbs they have done. Last year, the climbing group got attention after sharing pictures of a climb on the Great Wheel, down on the Seattle waterfront.

One or more members of the group is active on Reddit, where many of their pictures have been posted.

Watch the full video and decide if these climbers are the real deal.
