A daredevil dubbed the 'French Spider Man' has scaled one of the tallest skyscrapers in Barcelona - WITHOUT a safety harness.

Alain Robert climbed the Melia Barcelona Sky Hotel, a glass and steel covered hotel building known as the fourth tallest tower in the city.

Bystanders and police watched as the 55-year-old risked his life to ascend the building on Monday.

The urban climber is famous for his daredevil, harness-free approach to scuttling up buildings with nothing more than some chalk on his hands and climbing shoes on his feet.

Robert has conquered over 100 structures worldwide including San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, Dubai's Burj Khalifa complex, the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Sydney Opera House without safety equipment.
