In spite of suffering from vertigo, Alain chose to continue his dream and live for his passion - with no rope for protection. He has since won several awards and attracts huge media attention for every challenge. 100,000 spectators watched him scale the National Bank of Abu Dhabi.

He describes the mindset, the need for unbreakable concentration and the extraordinary route to self-confidence: ‘Climbing buildings with your bare hands seemed impossible, but the impossible remains until you make it possible.’
