UPI News Service, 03/11/2013 

The French climber dubbed "Spiderman" for his tendency to climb landmarks without safety equipment said he is hoping to scale London's Shard.

A court injunction barred Alain Robert from attempting to climb the 1,016-foot tower last year but he told Sky News he is hoping to meet with an official in the coming days to get permission to attempt the climb.

London Bridge Quarter, which developed and owns the Shard, said it does not want Robert climbing the building.

"The injunction prohibits Mr. Robert from entering the Shard site or attempting to climb the building," the company said in a statement. "Mr. Robert has been witnessed in the vicinity of the Shard and as LBQ Ltd. takes its responsibility to health and safety extremely seriously we have sought to prevent Mr. Robert from attempting to climb the Shard -- in the interest of his own safety and that of the general public."
