Some Frenchman who fashion himself a real-life Spiderman climbed the 45-storey Four Seasons Hotel in Hong Kong. Alain Roberts eluded city police to finish the climb, one of some 80 climbs that he's done around the world to raise awareness for global warming. We bet he had a killer view from that hotel.

We're not sure why he picked the Four Seasons but there are plenty of other super-tall hotels in Hong Kong he could have attempted to scale. Like:

· Langham Place: The hotel is in a skyscraper that uses some floors for an office space. Still the hotel is pretty big with 665 rooms on 42 floors.
·Hyatt Regency Hong Kong: 64 floors and 723 rooms.
·Island Shangri-La: 57 floors and and 565 rooms.
·Intercontinental Hong Kong: 61 floors and 513 rooms.
