Malaysia's twin towers climbed by the French Spiderman

I just wrote about him in a previous post, and now he did it again! What a co-incidence, Alain Robert who known as the French 'Spiderman' did a recent scaling the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. And he once again did it illegally :D

“He can be charged for criminal trespassing,” Kuala Lumpur police chief Muhammad Sabtu Osman said by telephone today. “There wasn’t any approval for him to climb the building.”

Alain first tried scaling the towers in 1997 and again in 2007, and both attempts were thwarted by police and building security officials. He start climbing at 6 a.m. local time and went up 88 floors to reach the peak of Tower 2. Muhammad Sabtu said that now he is being held in the district police station for questioning.

He conquered more than 80 skyscrapers and monuments around the world during the past 15 years. He often climbs to promote awareness of climate change.
