Urban turned and raised his arms in the air when he reached the roof, where a team of police and hotel staff was waiting for him.
He was joined by officials by the hotel before leaving the applause of about 30 people waiting outside.
Last November, Urbanus scaled the Catalan city’s 475-meter-tall Torre Glories skyscraper without equipment.

But its highest climb is 906 feet to the top floor of the Eiffel Tower in Paris in 2015.
The Barcelona City Council said that the hotel was not damaged during the Urban ascent and that it is still closed due to the corona virus pandemic.
However, the daredevil is reportedly fined for flying a drone in the city center.
Urban said on his last climb, “I’ve been preparing for three years. I always work a lot in advance to prepare for a climb.
‘I’ve been doing parkour barefoot for about 15 years, like I do in nature. I train barefoot in trees and mountains. ‘
He added, “Doing something like that means challenging your fears and pursuing your dreams through hard work. It is invaluable.

It’s important to remind yourself that you can leave your comfort zone to chase your dreams without fear.
“Not everyone has to climb a building for that, but everyone has their potential and we have to make the most of it.”
Despite his recent fine, the climber said that the police are always warm and friendly to him.
