We've all hear of Skyscraper Climber Dan Goodwin a.k.a. Spider-Dan right? The guy that's been climbing skyscrapers since 1981 and is still here to tell the tale and scale the next beast. The crazy thing is that Dan Goodwin doesn't use any ropes and harnesses, but only relies on hand-held suction cups for his climbing. Unfortunately this time San Francisco police arrested him after he refused to climb back down but not until he fastened an American flag at the top.
Goodwin reportedly said he climbed the building to call attention to what he described as the ongoing vulnerability of skyscrapers to terrorist attacks. He also said he wanted to inspire patients battling cancer, which he said he overcame to continue climbing. Check out his other climbs here.
