French daredevil Alain Robert reaches into his chalk bag as he scales the Habana Libre hotel without using ropes or a safety net, in Havana, Cuba, Monday, Feb. 4, 2013. Once the city's Hilton, Robert was able to reach the top of the 27-story building in 30 minutes. Robert has scaled much taller buildings in his career. He says his main concern is that the hotel is in disrepair like other Havana landmarks.
