French 'Spiderman' climbs skyscraper to save crumbling Notre-Dame cathedral

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Dubbed the "French Spiderman", Alain Robert scaled a skyscraper in Paris on Friday (March 25) without a harness to raise funds for the renovation of Notre-Dame cathedral.

The 56-year-old was seen using horizontal struts running up the Engie headquarters' curved facade and a protruding structure going top-to-bottom of the 185-meter (607 feet) glass-fronted building in La Defense business district.

Before the climb, he said he wanted to give a helping hand for the renovation of the cathedral and hoped others would do too.

His sponsors were writing a cheque of 5,000 euros ($5,650) to help finance the renovations, he added.

Robert was arrested shortly after completing the climb.

He has climbed more than 100 structures including the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and Burj al Khalifa in Dubai, as well as the same tower in Paris in 2016.
