Last year rumours started that climbing best known soloist, Alex Honnold, was going to solo the outside of one of the World's greatest skyscrapers, live on TV. Plans were made and it was confirmed that the stunt would take place on Taipei 101, a 1667 foot building in Taiwan and the 2nd highest skyscraper in the World. However, the stunt is now on hold until 2014 in order to give the team time to make the necessary plans. Alex will climb the building whilst being filmed by a crew of cameramen, and the whole thing will be broadcast on National Geographic. Climbing skyscrapers was really pioneered by legendary French climber Alain Robert, who is most commonly known by his nickname, "The Human Spider". Robert combined this sort of stunt with some illegal climbs, and it would be fair to say that he's attracted his fair share of trouble!
