The Frenchman - dubbed “Spiderman” for his amazing free-climbs - took 75 minutes to complete the climb.
He scaled Doha’s tallest tower without a harness or safety ropes in front of a riveted crowd who watched from the ground below.
Speaking ahead of the climb, Robert said: “I feel like a child and I finally want to open my present: I want to climb The Torch.”
Robert has scaled more than 85 giant structures around the world, including the Empire State Building, Chicago’s Willis Tower and the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, and Doha’s La Cigale Hotel.
