Alain Robert

Alain Robert is known as the Human Spiderman, the world’s greatest ever climber. A death-defying free climber, even following a life-threatening fall, he has scaled dozens of skyscrapers around the world. Alain is now a motivational speaker, conference speaker and corporate speaker whose talks describe the resilience and drive needed to become a top athlete, even after the biggest of setbacks.


About Alain Robert

Alain Robert has conquered the world’s tallest buildings in his career as a free climber. He is world renowned having climbed 143 of the world’s tallest buildings with his bare hands.  His most noteworthy famous landmarks include The Eiffel Tower, one of Petronas Tower, the Empire State Building, and the Montparnasse Tower. Alain has had several serious accidents including the one which nearly finished him.


Alain Robert believes that his passion for climbing began in childhood when he spent his times climbing cliffs in the gorges of southwestern France. His ascent of the 828-meter Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai made front page news worldwide. Ascending the National Bank of Abu Dhabi attracted over 150,000 amazed spectators along with millions who watched online. Despite continuing to suffer from vertigo which is one of the lasting consequences of his most serious of his many falls, he has won several awards. Undoubtedly, it was his incredible courage and extraordinary degree of self-confidence which helped him continue his dream. He lives for his passion – with no rope for protection. Understandably he attracts huge media attention for every challenge.

Born in Digoin in Burgundy France, Alain is 5ft 5in and weighs 7st 12lb (50kg). This low fat ratio of bones to muscle helps his extreme athleticism and skill.

Alain’s story become a 3D feature film: The Web of Life and his autobiography, “With Bare Hands”, was first published in English in 2008.
