Alain Robert, also know as "Spiderman" due to fact that he has already climbed 70 other skyscrapers, scrambled up the outside of the Burj Khalifa. Okay, he was also doing it for the Education Without Borders conference, but that was only the first 20 floors or so - the rest, and the fireworks, were all for Katie!
Ok, fine they were also for the Education Without Borders event. Just don't tell her that.
Starting at 6:03pm, he finally finished around 12:30am - what a slowpoke! In six and a half hours, we were able to get changed, have a lovely birthday dinner out on the town, come home, change again, and get comfy to watch him reach the top. All he did was climb up 858 meters - chump.
