A 56-year-old Frenchman has been banned from climbing any building in Britain.

Alain Robert is famous for climbing skyscrapers around the world. He is often called the “French Spider-Man” or “Human Spider.”

On Oct. 25, he climbed the Heron Tower, one of London’s tallest skyscrapers. The Heron is 202 meters tall. Robert climbed it without ropes — and without permission.

As he scaled the side of the tower, police cordoned off the building, closed roads and asked spectators to move away.

The urban climber was arrested after the climb. On Oct. 26, he pleaded guilty in a London court to causing a public nuisance. The judge gave him a 20-week suspended sentence and a £5,500 (¥794,000) fine. Robert was also banned from climbing any building in Britain “until further notice.”

Before he climbed the Heron, he told reporters, “I fully feel alive when my life is at stake.” (AP)
