A German teen broke decades-old laws and risked prison after he illegally scaled an Egyptian pyramid so that he could post the photos and videos of the risky adventure to his blog.
Andrej Cieselski, an 18-year-old from Munich, illegally climbed the 4,500-year-old Great Pyramid in broad daylight earlier this month for the sake of the breathtaking photos and videos he took while on top.

You bring up a good point. Social media have ruined "secret spots."
You do a cool thing, or find a cool location. So what do you do? Tell the world about it, of course! Selfies and youtube and vimes, oh my!
Next time you go you'll find 600 people at that awesome waterfall.
I feel climbing on the Giza structures should still be banned and illegal to be honest.
I did this in January 1972 along with a couple of hundred people. There was a steady stream of people going up and down the northeast corner, almost all Egyptians. I joined them. I stumbled and almost fell to my death coming down. It was an unforgettable experience, though. I'm glad I did it, and also glad it is no longer permitted. Too dangerous.
