Because of his ability as a climber, this man whose full name is Robert Alain Phillipe gets the nickname Spider-Man from France. Although not a performer in the entertainment world, his shrewdness, and skill in climbing walls and cliffs have led him to become one of the most popular figures in the world.
Born in France on August 7, 1962, this man has shown talent as a climber at a very early age. Until now, he has set a record as a tall building climber using makeshift equipment.
Since childhood, Robert has indeed shown its own interest in the world of rock climbing. At the age of 12, Robert accidentally forgot to put the apartment key and was forced to lock on the eighth floor. But with his ability to climb, he managed to get out without the slightest injury.
What he did was not without risk. In 1982, he suffered two fatal accidents which left his obsession with climbing almost gone. In the accident that occurred in January and September 1982, Robert fell from a height of 15 meters, resulting in a number of serious injuries.
Despite experiencing permanent vertigo until now, but that hobby never dies. Accident after accident that haunts his career as a climber has never scared him to face challenges.
Until now, he had a lot of experience climbing tall buildings he did. Skyscrapers such as the Eiffel Tower, Sydney Opera House and Montparnasse Tower are not a hindrance for him at all. Although he was arrested several times because of being caught climbing a tall building, he never gave up. This is what makes the whole world amazed at the figure of Robert.
