Storyline

Alain Robert is known to the world as 'The Human Spider' and is arguably the most daring climber the world has ever seen.

Watch Alain as he takes on the 88-storey edifice with just his bare hands, some chalk dust, and an awful lot of nerve. Alain's attempts to 'free climb' up the outside of some of the world's tallest buildings and structures without any safety equipment have earned him a reputation as one of the world's greatest Daredevils. Despite suffering from epilepsy and admitting to a fear of heights, Alain Robert has made headlines around the world with his unbelievable feats of daring.

The Human Spider Returns
4 December 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

You may remember the Cutting Edge documentary about the man who climbs the world's tallest buildings, bridges and structures, well this small series called Daredevils saw him return to do it again. Alain Robert is the French climber who does all these dangerous summits without ropes, harnesses or any safety equipment, even suffering epilepsy, but he retains his nickname, "The Human Spider". This programme sees him attempt the building he has tried twice before, the Petronas Towers in Malaysia, dressed as Spider-Man, although I could swear they showed this is the first documentary I saw. It also sees him climb the Jin Mao Tower in Shanghai, the Debis Tower in Berlin, and the big hook, Europe's highest tower, the Federation Tower in Moscow. Very good!
