The Human Spider

















Image courtesy: Google

Whatever you call him but Alain Robert proved that nothing is impossible. The French Spiderman took on Abu Dhabi's tallest building without taking any safety mechanisms. He completed the climb in only 20 minutes. Sounds amazing. Robert has also climbed the Sears Tower in Chicago, Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Eiffel Tower in Paris and Empire State Building in New York City.

wow! he has courage and a little madness, beautiful photos

Marutham said...

MAN , he is amazing!

He just never gives up... does he?
He must be that ONE man who is always arrested for the same crime(FAME) and never stops...and one man who is proud at every arrest!
I just hope he is always arrested after he starts the climb....and ENDS it well...

That is pretty crazy! Those are beautiful photos! I think it's inspiring in a way. He reminds me a bit of Philippe Petit from the Documentary Man on Wire, I think they have the same mentality of doing the impossible.

Thanks for posting his latest thrill I believe :)

That's so scary! I believe he was in Singapore and tried to climb one building but was caught by the police and warned not to do it again.

I don't think that being famous for being insane should be called a good thing...

It is always inspiring to see somebody fearlessly following their passion and bliss. What he does is very dangerous, possibly even crazy, but that is his choice. Good for him.
