As night fell, a row of powerful spotlights shone on the side of the tower, so spectators could see Robert in action. After just over six hours Robert was waving down from more than half a mile in the air having even navigated the tapered spire that extends beyond the top floors of the structure.

An ambulance — with a stretcher at the ready — was parked alongside other emergency vehicles at the bottom of the tapering metal and glass tower.
