“In the afternoon, the police received a call from the skycraper's head of security about a young man who was trespassing the premises by climbing on the building. Devlyashov was trying to follow the footsteps of a French “Spiderman” Alen Robert who managed to conquer more than 80 high-rise buildings around the world. The Empire State Building, the Eiffel Tower and Moscow State University are just a small part of the egregious Frenchman’s achievements.
