French Spider-man – level 2

29-07-2021 15:00

A man called the French Spider-man climbed the fourth highest building in Barcelona. He did not have any safety equipment, but just chalk on his hands and climbing shoes on his feet.

A head camera filmed his 20-minute climb. After he got to the top of the 29-storey building, police questioned him. They released him without charge.

Difficult words: storey (a floor or a level of a building), release (let go), charge (saying that somebody did something illegal).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
