A brave raccoon scaled a building in Minneapolis, Minnesota, making his way more than 20-stories up.

According to CBS affiliate WCCO in Minneapolis, the raccoon was spotted in downtown St. Paul curled up under an elevated sidewalk.

When building workers attempted to nab the raccoon from the ledge, it scurried over to UBS Plaza and started climbing.

The raccoon's climb quickly became a live event with twitter users in the area tracking his progress and WCCO starting a live stream.

A couple people have even created a Twitter handles for the raccoon, posting updates to his journey on his behalf.

Animal control officials also took to Twitter to keep the public informed of their plan.
