And he didnâ€™t just walk up the Shanghai World Financial Center but cycled up â€“ on a bike with no saddle.
The Polish extreme cyclist rode up to the steel and glass towerâ€™s observatory, on the 100th floor, in 1hr, 21min and 51sec.
The rather odd achievement, made without once touching the ground with his feet, won him a Guinness World Record.
In doing so, Mr Herba broke his own record which he set in January 2012 when he guided his bike up the 2,040 steps of one of the worldâ€™s tallest hotels, the 72-storey Rose Tower in Dubai.
He accomplished that in 1hr, 13min and 41sec.
The 31-year-old Pole has taken on a host of tall buildings, including some of the highest skyscrapers in Poland, Austria and Germany, in his niche sport many people may have been unaware even existed.
But it requires extreme strength, endurance and balance to negotiate narrow stairwells and tight cornersâ€¦ floor after floor.
There are plenty of challenges still to conquer.
The worldâ€™s tallest building, the 828m (2,716ft) Burj Khalifa in Dubai with its 163 storeys, awaits.
