Absolutely yes...

I don't think he will climb it. They won't allow him and rather shot him down. Only base-jumers are welcomed.

until 768 m maybe but the spire until 818 m is more dangerous and difficult to climb.

Great shots! For fountain part... I noticed that they painted two different colors... Only reason they painted Navy blue (darker blue) around the fountains to make the lake look deeper and realistic right?

The cladding with this building isn't very to climb on. And especially the height would be considered as a serious problem.

Climbing the Taipei 101 took already 4 hours to climb. And then in Dubai 1/3 higher as the Taipei 101, much hotter and difficult cladding...

I think it's just for dramatic effect around the fountain. If they wanted to make it appear deeper, they would have graduated between the lighter and darker colors.

Fury, do you have any drawing details on the attachments connected to the spire just below the cladding in first pic?

Yet climbing the Sears Tower, Petronas Towers, Jin Mao etc. etc. etc. etc. would not damage any reputations? Look up the name Alain Robert, he will climb this tower, it's just a matter of time.
