OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) — A man climbed the Devon Tower in Oklahoma City Tuesday morning as an anti-abortion protest.

He didn’t use any climbing gear only chalk for his hands as he scaled the 50 story building in downtown Oklahoma City.
He reached the top where officials were waiting for him and took him into custody.
He face possible charges of trespassing and disorderly conduct.
Meteorologist Emily Sutton says winds near the top of the building were around 35-40 mph.
The Devon Tower has 50 floors and is the tallest building in Oklahoma.
On his website, ProLifeSpiderMan.com he says he grew up in Michigan and has a love of climbing.
He claims in 2021 he climbed the 600ft Aria Hotel to protest Nevada’s Covid-19 Mandates.
