30 APRIL 2015 Paris France – The World has united to support Nepal at this hour with whatever possible from them. Some has donated millions of dollar, some came up with relief team and some collected donation by using their skill, even some beg in the Streets.

Similarly French “Spiderman” Alain Robert on Tuesday climbed up the highest building in Paris with a Nepalese flag in hand, in tribute to the victims of the devastating earthquake that hit the country.

The 53-year-old French daredevil scaled the 210-meter high Montparnasse Tower in the French capital without a security harness in a little less than an hour.

During his climb, he tried to fix a Nepalese and multi-colour prayer flags to the building, but these quickly fluttered away with the wind.

Before starting his climb, he said his thoughts went to mountaineers stuck at the Everest base camp, where many died in avalanches triggered by the monster quake that has killed more than 5,000 people and left some 10,000 injured. The toll of victim could reach up to 30,000 when all cleared up and searched one by one, house by house in the mountain.

Alain Robert said his thoughts went to mountaineers stuck at the Everest base camp, where many died in avalanches triggered by the quake.

The Frenchman has climbed some 130 structures around the world without ropes or other safety equipment, setting a record for “most buildings climbed unassisted” according to Guinness World Records.

These include the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the tallest tower in the world, the Eiffel Tower, Empire State Building, and Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Twin Towers.

It is the third time that he has climbed the Montparnasse Tower.

“If I am still physically in shape, I will be able to climb until 60, 65 years old,” Robert said.
