Alain Robert is a climber from France and is known around the world as the ‘French Spiderman’ because of his crazy climbing skills! Alain is famous for climbing skyscrapers using no climbing equipment except for a small bag of chalk and a pair of climbing shoes. He has climbed some of the most dangerous and risky buildings such as the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Sydney Opera house! Alain is climbing into fame as he will be appearing on a CBBC show called ‘Super Human Challenge’ which is coming to our screens on March 27th. Authorities will not normally give someone permission for such dangerous challenges , so Alain usually appears at dawn on the site of whichever giant place he has chosen to climb. As a consequence, Alain has been arrested many times, in various countries, but this has never stopped him from continuing his adventures.
