'French Spiderman' scales Four Seasons

HONG KONG Alain Robert scaled the 45-story Four Seasons Hotel in Hong Kong.

He says the stunt was designed to draw attention to the problem of global warming.

About 45 minutes into the feat, firefighters arrived and set up safety equipment amid concerns that the daredevil might fall.

But Alain Robert made it to the top about 15 minutes later.

He had made a spa appointment with the hotel to be able to gain access into the building.
