Weekend Warrior -- Videos to Get You Stoked!

Believe it or not, there is another kind of climber out there. This is the climber that sees a tower of cement and steel as an objective, not as a place of work. And while this type of climbing isn't terribly legal, it's really cool to watch.

Alain Robert is known as Spiderman because he has practiced the art of climbing in the city as much as he has in the mountains. Following are a couple of videos about this urban adventurer.

Check out Alain Robert in the first video as he climbs a 46 story skyscraper in Brazil and in the second, watch as he scales the Tour Montparnasse skyscraper in Paris.
