''French Spiderman'' has been at it again.

This time in Manila, as astonished crowds watched on from below.

56-year-old French climber Alain Robert scaled the 47-story GT Towers on Tuesday (January 29), without a harness, ropes or any kind of safety net.

Freeclimbing has been a hobby since he was just 11 years old, and it's lead him to climb more than 150 skyscrapers worldwide.

Paris, London, Havana, Jakarta, the list goes on.

In 2011, he scaled the tallest skyscraper in the world - Dubai's Burj Khalifa.

While Robert may have the climbing skills of superhero, he's not completely invincible.

After his descent, he was promptly arrested by authorities and driven away by police.
