Urban climber Alain Robert, also known as the "French Spiderman," scaled a skyscraper in Paris Wednesday.

The 57-year-old made his way up the 499-foot Ariane Tower despite a police warning that his pursuit was dangerous.

Robert has been arrested more than 120 times for his illegal ascents.

This time was no different, as he was greeted by police upon his return and escorted into a police car.
