An activist who calls himself “Pro-Life Spiderman” has climbed to the top of The Sphere in Las Vegas.
The climber, Maison Des Champs, is famous for completing perilous climbs to raise money for pro-life causes and to support women in crisis pregnancies.
Des Champs said in an Instagram video that he was climbing the Sphere to raise money for a homeless woman who was pregnant.

Let Them Live, an organization that Des Champs often works with, said in a statement that he chose Las Vegas to coincide with the Super Bowl.
“While half a million football fans arrive in Las Vegas for Superbowl LVIII, Des Champs wants to shake the public into caring about the fate of unborn children in our country,”the statement read.
Des Champs has previously raised money for crisis pregnancies by climbing the Accenture tower in Chicago, the New York Times Building in Manhattan, the Salesforce Tower in San Francisco, and many other skyscrapers.
He also once climbed to the top of the Aria Hotel in Las Vegas to protest COVID restrictions.
“When he climbs these buildings, he does so without the aid and protection of ropes, a harness and other gear. This method of climbing, known as free soloing, is incredibly dangerous. Even a slight miscalculation or a poorly placed hand or foot can result in falling to one’s death,” NPR reported in 2022.
