Just saw this news about "Spiderman" (Alain Robert) climbing a 42-story building in Sao Paulo a couple of days ago:
SAO PAULO, Brazil — A French skyscraper climber nicknamed "Spiderman" scaled a 42-floor building with his bare hands in Sao Paulo on Wednesday, delighting nearly 2,000 onlookers before being detained by police.
With no safety equipment, Alain Robert crawled down and then back up the facade of the 495-foot Edificio Italia, one of the tallest buildings in South America's biggest city, said Alessandra Soave Costa, one of the building's assistant administrators.
Traffic in front of the iconic building was temporarily interrupted and onlookers cheered as Robert reached the top of the building, where police awaited him, Costa said.
Here is he climbing another building in Barcelona:
