French climber Alain Robert, also sometimes known as "Spiderman", can be seen climbing various structures around the world. Robert's website quotes himself as saying, "Climbing is my passion, my philosophy of life. Although I suffer from vertigo, although my accidents left me disabled up to 66%, I have become the best solo climber." (Yahoo News)
