Alain Robert, a.k.a. Spiderman, took on Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Twin Towers on Tuesday, Sept. 1. The Malaysian building is 452 meters tall with 88 stories-not an easy thing to climb but for Robert, who has climbed over 70 skyscrapers all over the world, this was just an ordinary day in his not so ordinary life.
He was able to reach the top but his victory was short lived. Right after his accomplishment, he was arrested for trespassing. He pleaded guilty on Wednesday. This isn’t the only time Robert got arrested for his climbing escapades. He tried the Twin Towers in 1997 and 2007 but was arrested both times at the 60th floor.
I feel that this won’t be his last time climbing a skyscraper or breaking the law as he stated, “Climbing is my passion, my life, my addiction.”
