French climber Alain Robert, also known as France’s Spider-man, climbed to the top of a 36-floor building in Paris’ business district this week in his latest of stunts that have become familiar around the world.
Undeterred by the cold and rain and using just his bare hands and talcum powder, the 53-year old climbed to the top of the 458 foot (152-metre) high Ariane building in under 30 minutes.
Upon descending, Robert said:
“I was thinking, well ok, for the moment there is no rain, but what will it be like in 10 meters, 15 meters, 20 meters.”
Robert has scaled several landmarks in the past, including the Eiffel Tower and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
Recently during a live morning television interview with Journalist Piers Morgan on British TV, Alain unexpectedly dropped the F-Bomb… quite a comical moment well worth a watch too:
