Anyone have more info on this? I've been searching around, but no luck.

Man Climbing One of the Twin Towers


Twenty-seven-year-old Chicago Stock Exchange worker Dan Goodwin unrolls an American flag as he completes the climb up one of the 110-story World Trade Center towers. Two years earlier, he had scaled Sears Tower in Chicago.

I remember reading this...

When the towers were first built in '73. I think this was also during the period when someone tight rope walked between them LOL.

Apparently, the guy who climbed, developed some kind of customized climing gear that attached itself to the beveled edge on the side of the towers.

I believe the tightrope walker and this man were arrested promptly.
