It was only a matter of time before someone tried to scale the Las Vegas Sphere.
Nothing gets people’s attention like risking your own life to climb a building. That’s especially true when the thing you are scaling is already really good at catching eyes…considering it’s the largest spherical LED screen in the world.
Someone that goes by the name of “Pro-Life Spiderman” seems to be the culprit, which caused Las Vegas police to close down streets surrounding the venue and rush to the scene to figure out next steps. KTNV Las Vegas reported that Maison DesChamps, A.K.A. Pro-Life Spiderman, went live on his social media while he was climbing the structure.
And over 12 hours ago, he posted this onto his Instagram story, tagging the NFL and sharing a picture of an “abortion is murder” banner:
Everything adds up to DesChamps being the person behind this, as he’s done many stunts like this in the past. “Pro-Life Spiderman” once climbed a Chicago skyscraper in a sponsorship with Ultra Right Beer, and at last year’s Super Bowl, he scaled a building in Arizona in front of fans that had traveled there for the game.
So with this year’s “Big Game” being held in Las Vegas, this stunt is likely no coincidence. There’s no better way to make headlines than to climb up a structure that everyone is already talking about anyways. Though I feel like the Sphere was likely one of “Pro-Life Spiderman’s” toughest tasks to date.
You can view the video below, which gives insight into just how massive of an undertaking climbing the Las Vegas Sphere would be:
“The Sphere is the largest spherical structure in the entire world with a 580,000-square-foot exterior. The Sphere is a whopping 366 feet tall and 516 feet wide.”
JUST IN: Someone has successfully climbed to the top of ‘The Sphere’ in Las Vegas.
It is currently unknown exactly how they were able to do this.

And it was eventually confirmed that it was Maison DesChamps who was behind the Las Vegas Sphere stunt. He was able to get down off the structure by going through the top, which apparently has some sort of access point to safely get back down to ground level.
“Pro-Life Spiderman” also shares why he climbed to the top of the Las Vegas Sphere in the clip below:
JUST IN: The man who climbed 'The Sphere' in Las Vegas is Maison DesChamps, who is a pro-life activist.
DesChamps filmed himself at the top of the 366 foot tall structure and said he was raising money for a homeless pregnant woman.
