“Spiderman” in Barcelona – level 3
French “Spiderman” Alain Robert, who climbed over 100 structures to date, including the Burj Khalifa and the Eiffel Tower, scaled one of Barcelona’s tallest towers without a harness. He completed the feat in around an hour.
Police officers looked on as the 54-year-old daredevil climbed the Torre Agbar on Friday, but police quickly apprehended him right after he climbed back down from the 38-storey building. On the other hand, a crowd of fans and reporters greeted him.
Difficult words: scale (climb up or down), harness (gear for safety), feat (a great achievement), daredevil (a person who likes doing dangerous things), apprehend (arrest).
