|French climber Alain Robert scaled Hong Kong's 62-story Cheung Kong Center skyscraper with his bare hands on Saturday, with the tattoo of online casino GoldenPalace.com on his naked torso.|
Police escorted the daredevil freeclimber back to the ground after a gruelling one hour ascent.
GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe said, 'We are proud to sponsor Alain in his efforts. He is a perfect example of what hard work and determination can accomplish. His climbs are so extraordinary that they are perfect for the edgy, eccentric brand of advertising that GoldenPalace.com has become famous for.'
Robert has climbed over 60 skyscrapers and landmarks world-wide including Taiwan's Taipei 101, Malaysia's Petronas Towers, the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building, and the straight-faced, glass-fronted Sears Tower in Chicago -- the highest occupied building in the world.
Online casino GoldenPalace.com has sponsored Robert for several of his climbs, including the Sydney Harbor Bridge in Australia, and arguably his most difficult climb when he ascended three-quarters of the way up Canary Wharf, the highest building in London, UK before extreme weather conditions prevented him from completing the climb.
