I'm extremely compelled by the thought of scaling the Khufu pyramid at Giza. I've read several people's journals about climbing it. Apparently it is done quite frequently.

So I have some questions regarding this:

Is it safe to climb? I heard there is a corner, the south-east corner, that is the safest? Is there a significant chance of falling, and if so, will you fall all the way down or will you be able to stop?

How easy is it to enter the complex at night, or hide out? Will you be spotted? Can you easily bribe guards to let you in?

I heard it's standard procedure to climb down and be arrested in the morning. Will this lead to jail or a fine, or can you bribe yourself out of that too?

You have to keep in mind that Egypt after the revolution is a bit different than before.. especially the police. –  MeNoTalk Mar 26 '13 at 23:29
So do you not think this would be easy to pull off in maybe 2-3 years' time? –  DarkLightA Mar 26 '13 at 23:54
Since this is a question that is about an illegal activity I would consider this as not suitable for this site and suggest therefore to close it. We should not use it to advise people on how to break the law. –  uncovery Mar 27 '13 at 0:15
Agreed. Ethical or not, it is illegal, and as such not suitable for stackexchange, sorry. –  Mark Mayo Mar 27 '13 at 4:14
