This huge ladder strung between two mountains looks like it could be the real stairway to heaven.

The perilous climb in Gosaukamm, Upper Austria, sees brave daredevils scale the wobbly steps, made of steel and rope, while the top appears to reach into the clouds high above.

Sebastian Scheichl, from Salzburg, shot these breathtaking images and vertigo-inducing footage as his friend, Johannes Jank, braved the spectacular stairway along with two others.

Sebastian, 23, said: “I was so excited, I couldn’t believe my eyes at that moment.

“It was the first time we’d climbed this ladder and I was scared for sure but we were secured.

“There were harnesses and we had proper climbing gear on us.”
