    A DAREDEVIL climber has ignored warnings about the imminent eruption of a Bali volcano by clambering to the top to take a selfie and film a video.

    Mangku Mokoh took the daring snap after scaling Mount Agung, which is expected to erupt at any moment.

    The photo, which has been shared thousands of times on social media, shows him sitting calmly on the edge of the crater while steam rises behind him.

    He even took a video of the crater, which is belching smoke into the atmosphere through cracks in its surface.

    A number of priests have also scaled the volcano over the past 24 hours to make offerings.

    Their actions have sparked scathing criticism from officials who warned people to avoid the mountain until it is declared safe.

    Mount Agung has been shaking throughout September, with fears it could erupt at any moment

    Pull stupid tricks, win stupid prizes.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    . If you ain't havin' fun, it's your own damn fault

    I lost all respect for daredevils when Evil Kenevil tried to jump Snake River Canyon. I have particular disrespect for the Wallendas and their "tradition" of not using safety nets, that has led to the unnecessary deaths and injuries of several members of their family over the years.
