world's leading urban climber
has ascended over 70 skyscrapers across the world
Achieving the impossible
One of the world’s leading solo climbers, Alain Robert has developed a whole new sport: urban climbing. So far he has ascended more than 70 skyscrapers across the world, including the world’s tallest buildings.
In spite of suffering from vertigo, Alain chose to continue his dream and live for his passion - with no rope for protection. He has since won several awards and attracts huge media attention for every challenge. 100,000 spectators watched him scale the National Bank of Abu Dhabi.
Alain recounts his experiences in French or English, with remarkable footage. He describes the mindset required to achieve the impossible, the need for unbreakable concentration and the extraordinary route to self-confidence: ‘Climbing buildings with your bare hands seemed impossible, but the impossible remains until you make it possible.’
