Pézenas spiderman arrested in Manila

LanguedocLiving, Jan 29

Pézenas resident and urban freeclimber Alain Robert was arrested after he scaled one of Manila’s tallest towers in his latest high-risk ascent this week.

The 56-year old adventurer called the "French spiderman" climbed the 47-storey GT Tower without safety equipment, leaving watchers on the ground staring in amazement.

"This is my path, this is my way of living. It is as important to me as eating, sleeping. I need that. It keeps me alive,” he told reporters. Police took him into custody as soon as he reached the ground.
