French urban free climber arrested

French urban free climber arrested - French urban freeclimber Alain Robert has been arrested after he scaled one of Manila's tallest towers in his latest high-risk stunt. The 56-year old adventurer dubbed the "French spiderman" climbed the 47-storey GT Tower without safety equipment, leaving watchers on the ground staring in amazement. Police were less enthusiastic about the stunt and took him into custody as soon as he reached the ground after the roughly two-hour climb up and down the building.
