    The famous French climber has already reached the tops of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai which is 829 meters (2,719 ft) and the Empire State Building in New York that is 443.2 meters (1,454 ft).

    Alain Robert, 56, climbed the 230-meter (754-ft) Heron Tower in the City in London with no safety gear, using only wafer-thin gloves and chalk on October 25.

    The French Spiderman was detained just after scrambled back down to Earth for causing a public nuisance.
