World's Most Famous Spiderman Scales World's Tallest Tower

Frenchman Alain Robert likes to climb up stuff, apparently! The famed "urban climber," who has scaled more than 70 of the tallest skyscrapers on Earth, has just added the world's tallest building to his belt: Dubai's Burj Khalifa. Strapped into a safety harness, Robert took six hours to reach the top of the 2,717-foot tower, then waved upon reaching the top of the spire. We assume he also did a little jig up there, too.
