Alain Rober – REAL EXTREME!

In a long list of phobias, many of which nature has generously endowed with man, there is one called fear of heights. People subject to this scourge often use the expression “breathtaking”, even if they are separated from a hard surface by some ridiculous two meters. But nevertheless, one should pay tribute to justice – anyone will feel, to put it mildly, not comfortable when there is an abyss several hundred meters deep underfoot.

Anyone, but not Alain Robert, since this extreme is the steeper the height, the better and, therefore, there is work to do. They admire him, make fun of him, they simply do not understand him, but everyone, as one, agrees that Robert is an extraordinary personality, an athlete without fear and reproach, a player with Destiny and Fortune.

On August 7, 1962, a boy is born in the city of Diguein in the French province of Burgundy, who, subsequently, is destined to become a spider-man. Not a comic book hero, not a cinematic character, but a very real builder, crazy the public and law enforcement agencies of the whole planet with his courage and restless character. They say that as a 12-year-old kid, Alain climbed into his apartment on the eighth floor for accidentally forgotten keys. Probably, the emotions that swept Robert after his first ascent ended successfully were too hot. And all subsequent life only confirms this assumption. Something turned upside down in the boy’s soul, displacing the unnecessary and leaving a place exclusively for one thing – Heights.

Passion for building – climbing on the walls of high-rise buildings and structures – did not come immediately. At first, Alain was professionally involved in climbing and conquered many mountain peaks. And the worst of all those seven falls that happened in his career, happened just at that time. In 1982, the next rise could be the last – insurance failed, and Robert, falling from a great height, woke up in a hospital after a six-day stay in a coma. His pelvic bones, arms, both collarbones were broken. Alain was partially immobilized, but …. A year later, Robert was climbing to another height.

In 1994, the athlete was offered to climb a high-rise building in Chicago for a monetary reward. Previously, Robert already practiced such tricks, but from that moment his business began. And who can blame Alena for this ?! If a person plays with death, then why, in compensation for a fresh record and a new dawn on the horizon, not take a fee ?! By the way, at the same time, Alain refused the safety equipment, relying only on the strength and dexterity of his own fingers and toes.

Skyscrapers, towers, bridges, banks, shopping centers – these are the objects around the world from now on that were of interest to the athlete. Their complete list will take more than one page, because the number of “conquered” buildings is over the roof! It is worth mentioning some in order to clarify – Alain Robert is not exchanged for nothing: Petronas Tower (Kuala Lumpur), Moscow State University building (Moscow), Eiffel Tower (Paris), Empire State Building (New York). And also pay attention to the height of buildings, on the roof of which Spider-Man stood proudly after lifting without insurance using limbs: Willis Tower (Chicago) – 443 meters, Jin Mao Tower (Shanghai) – 420 meters, Taipei 101 (Taiwan) – 508 meters and, of course, the “crown of the collection” Burd Khalifa (Dubai) – 828 meters. There, the Frenchman, as a rule, was already expected by the local police to be forwarded to the department and issued a substantial fine for an unauthorized rise. However, Robert is not used to such things.

Alain Robert, by his own admission, cannot exist without height. Even despite serious health problems – bouts of epilepsy and dizziness, like echoes of past falls. In 2018, Robert turned 56 years old, and the tireless athlete celebrated this event with a successful assault on the 230-meter London Heron Tower. And this is the whole magnificent Allen!
