PARIS (AP) — The French skyscraper climber known to some as Spiderman has struck again: This time, on France's new tallest building.

Alain Robert scaled the recently heightened First tower in La Defense business district west of Paris on Thursday. Hundreds of onlookers peered out of its windows or craned their necks as he went up.

Robert has ascended more than 100 skyscrapers and monuments over his 15-year career of daredevil climbs using no support equipment.

Often his climbs are illegal, but not this time: Thursday's feat up the 231-meter (758-foot) building got its owner's go-ahead.

Robert said he doesn't battle fear on the way up because "I really don't have time to be afraid, I really have other things to do."
