Alain Robert climbs a 27-story Cuban hotel.

There are plenty of thrill seekers around but some really push the envelope.

50-year-old, Alain Robert, a French climber is one such individual.

In his most recent stunt, he climbed the famous Habana Libre hotel in Cuba. The building is 27 stories high. Even more shocking is the fact that Robert successfully scaled the hotel without any safety equipment whatsoever.

It took him about a half of an hour to reach the top. Hundreds of witnesses gathered on the street to watch the daredevil. Robert’s ordeal was captured on camera.

He can be seen waving to the crowds, prompting for applause.

Nicknamed, the ‘French Spiderman’, Robert suffers from vertigo. Several accidents have left him 66% disabled but that doesn’t stop him.

He has previously climbed Sydney’s Lumiere building in about 20 minutes, the Pompidou Centre in Paris and Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building.
