Eiffel Tower Free Solo

On Monday, November 12, England’s Mike Robertson was arrested while soloing the outside of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. He made it roughly 720 feet up the 1,063 foot tall monument before surrendering to Police. Mike carried out the stunt in an effort to raise awareness about the situation in Burma. You can read an extensive write up at Rock & Ice.

Below you can see Mike climbing around 250 feet up as well as the red scarf he left to commemorate the color of a Monk’s clothing in Burma.
