Spiderman Alain Robert arrested in Sydney for scaling skyscraper
The man known as 'Spiderman', Alain Robert, was arrested in Sydney earlier today for scaling a 41-storey skyscraper, The Royal Bank of Scotland tower, with only his hands and his courage, as about 200 people stopped to watch him from below.
He reached the top and unfurled a banner displaying 'One Hundred Months', which is the organisation that believes we only have 100 months to fix global warming or there will be irreversible consequences.
Traffic also came to a halt to watch the famous climber, who is known for climbing up buildings without ropes or other equipment.
Police closed off a section of the busy street below, causing gridlock. The crowd cheered as Robert reached the top. He then climbed back down, where waiting officers arrested him.
Mr. Robert has climed over 70 skyscrapers around the world.
