    by PressTV

    Once again, French climber Alain Robert is getting ready to crawl up another tall building, this time in China.

    Robert, who is also known as the French Spiderman, is set to climb the one-hundred and fifty three meter tall Galaxy Hotel in the Chinese city of Macao. Depending on calm weather conditions, Robert's climb is predicted to last forty-five minutes. Even if it rains on Wednesday, he says he will press on with the climb. Robert is famous for scaling the world's tallest skyscrapers with no safety equipment. He only has a small bag of chalk and climbing shoes. The French Spiderman has no means of quitting his challenges anytime soon.
