The climbing Frenchman's greatest hits.
French stuntman Alain Robert picked an awesome target for his latest publicity stunt: The Renzo Piano-designed New York Times building in Midtown Manhattan. We can't think of a better way to get some ink!
"Spiderman" scaled the entire 52-story skyscraper without any sort of special equipment; the cops corralled him on the roof and peacefully led him away.
While we think it's pretty amazing that Robert did the whole thing without even a rope and harness, a police officer was less than impressed, given the building's latticed facade:
To be honest, looking at this building, you don't have to be a professional. This building is like a ladder.
In honor of Robert's latest coup, we've put together a map of some of his previous climbs. Don't try this at home!
