Spiderman Strikes Again

 

Updated : Sep 2, 2009

A French climber known as 'Spiderman' has climbed one of the world's tallest buildings at the third attempt.



Alain Robert, 47, took just over two hours to scale the 88-storey Tower Two of the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur.

He has scaled many of the tallest buildings, using no safety equipment.

Mr Robert began his climb of the 1,483ft tower before dawn, after apparently eluding security, reports the BBC.

On reaching the top, he unfurled a Malaysian flag and waved his arms in celebration.

"He climbed using his bare hands and reached the top very fast as no security personnel noticed him or stopped him," said Ee Wee Kiat, a cameraman who filmed the ascent.

It was Mr Robert's third attempt to conquer the Petronas Towers, the third tallest building in the world.

On both previous occasions - in March 1997 and again in 2007 - he was arrested on reaching the 60th floor but released without charge.

"Climbing the Petronas all the way to the top is one of my dreams," he said, describing himself as determined but also "a little bit stubborn".

Mr Roberts was reported to have been detained by Malaysia police as he went back into the building on the 88th floor.
