Alain Robert, the French "Spiderman," climbs the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. To climb the 2,727-foot tower, Robert used ropes and a harness as a safety precaution. The building's owners gave Robert permission for the climb, which took him over six hours.

Robert has climbed over 70 of the world's most famous buildings, including the Eiffel Tower and the Empire State Building.
