Alain Robert, also known as the French Spiderman, brought a busy central London street to a standstill on Thursday, Oct. 25 as he climbed the 755-foot (230 meters) Heron Tower at Bishopsgate without any climbing gear or safety equipment.

One netizen, Charlotte (@CharrrrMc), filmed Robert and uploaded the video via Twitter on the same day.

City of London police asked the public in a tweet to stay away from the area during the time.

Robert, 56, has also scaled Dubai’s Burj Khalifa Tower and the Sydney Opera House. KM
