Alain Robert Climbs the World's Tallest Building

Alain Robert climbed to the top of the world's tallest building on Saturday - Taipei 101 in Taiwan. He took almost four hours to reach the top of the 1,679 foot building. The climb took him nearly twice as long as he had expected, partly because of dreary weather. Unlike on his normal ascents of tall buildings, this time he used a rope and pitched the climb taking breaks every 8 floors.
