Climb to raise awareness
French 'Spiderman' Alain Robert scales 613ft skyscraper to mark 60th birthday
Robert, who turned 60 last month, climbs without a harness, using only his bare hands, a pair of climbing shoes, and a bag of powdered chalk to wipe off the sweat.
Robert, who also wanted to use the climb to raise awareness about the need for climate change action, had already climbed the TotalEnergies tower on numerous occasions.
A great idea - surely all climate activists should give this a go. Especially as it raises awareness of the need for climate change action. Much more authentic than gluing yourself to the M25 which is bound to be seen as a somewhat sedentary form of "action" when compared to the exploits of M Robert.
