Spiderman climbs the Phoenicia Hotel in Beirut

Post by Mark

Alain Robert (Spiderman) who is famous for climbing famous skyscrapers around the world was in Beirut last week. He climbed the famous Phoenicia Hotel but the whole thing was too commercialized. He had permission from the hotel and the whole event was staged as a publicity stunt for Gillette. Not as interesting as his other climbs, very disappointing. [YouTube]

    This guy is seriously talented. According to his website ( http://www.alainrobert.com/en/identite.htm ) he has a disability level of 60% and suffers from vertigo! His kids apparently climb too. Whoa..

    Last time I knew, he never climbed with anything but his bare hands. What’s that string for?

    Maybe something from Gillette to avoid a ‘close shave’.

    he never used anything while climbing ..!
