11:45 AM PT — The daredevil has been ID’ed as Maison Des Champs — a rock climber who calls himself the “Pro-Life Spider-Man.”
On his personal website, he says he’s transitioned to climbing skyscrapers in an effort to end abortion.
The climber posted videos to his social media page mid-ascent on Tuesday, and said the climb was “not that hard.”
No word on if he’s been officially arrested — we’ve reached out to cops for comment, but have not received a response yet.
11:27 AM PT — S.F. Fire Department officials say the climber is now off the structure and currently with police.
Unreal scene in San Francisco on Tuesday morning … a daredevil is climbing up the city’s tallest skyscraper — with no ropes or safety nets.
The urban climber began his ascent on the Salesforce Tower in the middle of downtown S.F. shortly after sunrise — and as of this posting, he’s nearly made it to the top of the 60-floor, 1,070-foot tall building.
Videos shot by bystanders outside of the building are breathtaking … showing the guy scaling the structure seemingly without any issues at all.
In footage shot from people inside of the skyscraper, you can see the climber was calm and cool — and even smiling — as he made his way toward the top.
Authorities in San Francisco are on the scene … and are condemning the man for the stunt.
“This person is placing firefighters’ lives and the public’s safety at risk,” S.F. Fire Dept. officials said in a statement. “AVOID THE AREA and join us in condemning this action.”
No word on who the climber is yet or if he’s facing arrest if/when he makes it down.
