French Spiderman

A daredevil climber known as the French Spiderman who has scaled skyscrapers around the globe was arrested recently as he tried to clamber up a Houston office building. Alain Robert, 43, dashed from a taxi to the 46-story Houston Center but was stopped just as he was starting his ascent. Police said a reporter had tipped them off to his plans. A tall officer was able to grab his ankles. He was about one or two steps from getting away.

Robert's Web site claims he has climbed some 70 buildings including the Eiffel Tower; the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; London's Canary Wharf Building; the Empire State Building in New York and Chicago's Sears Tower. Houston police charged Robert with criminal trespass.
