A daredevil climber dubbed a modern-day Spiderman is gearing up for his greatest challenge yet - conquering the Burj Dubai without so much as a rope.

I'm just throwing out a random idea here: if there is going to be some telecommunications equipment/radio equipment up at the top -- wouldn't we see that equipment installed first before they clad?

That might take some time.

Almost anything now days would fit in a 19" rack and go up internally. Unless they want to cover Abu Dhabi there's no need for a half mile tall, high powered transmitting antenna.

Excellent! Is this official? Ever since I seen a documentary on this guy I was hoping he would climb it, how could he not? September sounds like a stunt for opening day...
