EDITED due to vodpod not working
“The “French Spider-Man” Alain Robert last night conquered the world’s tallest tower, the Burj Khalifa.
Dressed in red leggings and a white shirt, Robert began his 828metre climb at 6.03pm, reaching the summit just after midnight, displaying, in his own words, “the spirit to dare and succeed.””
the 3 news website has some good video coverage http://www.3news.co.nz/Frenchman-climbs-worlds-tallest-tower-Burj-Khalifa/tabid/313/articleID/204552/Default.aspx
And emirates247 has some excellent photos http://www.emirates247.com/news/spiderman-conquers-burj-khalifa-completes-828m-climb-by-midnight-2011-03-29-1.374297
“Alain Robert says he is not done with Dubai yet as Burj Al Arab is next on his list”
the blog has only just arrived, but the link says the vodpod no longer exists! That was quick!!
David- for some reason vodpod isn’t picking up the video. I’ve edited the post to show 2 news stories, first the original post with the video (inc interview) and second emirates247.com coverage with plenty of photos and a bit of video.
