The 46-year-old Frenchman is famous for scaling skyscrapers and famous architectures across the world, without safety equipments.
This was Robert’s third attempt to conquer the 452m Petronas Towers, formerly the world’s tallest building. He made the first attempt in 1997, and the second a decade later; both climbs were thwarted by authorities on the 60th floor.
He was subsequently arrested and fined RM2000 (~USD567) for illegal trespassing.
