“I feel like a child and I finally want to open my present. I want to climb The Torch,” said Robert, who plans to climb the 300-meter building on Thursday with his bare hands – and no safety rope or harness.
A spectator area will be set up for gawkers, and the event will start at 4 p.m. Expect to see Robert with a film crew and Guinness Book of World Records officials.
This week’s climb should be a cinch for Robert, whose other conquests include Chicago’s Willis Tower, New York’s Empire State Building and Dubai’s 828-meter Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower.
When: Thursday, April 12 at 4pm
Where: The Torch Doha, between Villagio Mall and Aspire Zone
So, who’s going?
