Jared Leto Injured His Hand But Became The First Person Who Climb The Empire State Building

The 51-year-old musician climbed to the top of the Empire State Building. Jared Leto was seriously injured during the ascent, but this did not stop him from continuing.

The lead singer of 30 Seconds to Mars got special permission from the authorities to conquer the 102-story skyscraper in New York, on Manhattan Island. Jared became the first person to do so.

The musician covered a distance of 390 meters: he spent about 20 minutes on the east facade of the legendary building. During the ascent, the artist cut his left hand on a sharp element of the facade. He showed his bloody hand to the camera.

Despite the injury, Jared still completed the climb. Leto was in climbing gear, and a special rope ensured his safety. "I was more excited than nervous to tell you the truth," Leto said. "But I have to be honest, it was very, very hard. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be,” Jared admitted.
This way, he announced the start of a new tour of his band with the new album It’s The End Of The World But It’s A Beautiful Day. He expressed his opinion that New York is the place where people come to become artists. "The Empire State Building has always been a special symbol for me," Jared concluded.
