'Spiderman' climbs France's tallest building

The skyscraper climber known to some as "Spiderman" struck again this week - this time on France's tallest building.

Using only his bare hands and climbing shoes, Alain Robert scaled the First tower in Paris. At one point, he stopped and asked office workers which floor he was on.

Robert's climbs are often illegal, but the building's owner gave him permission this time around. He even made a phone call once he got to the top of the 758-foot building.
