For real, the critter looks to be pulling down V13 V14 moves between ledges.

The top out, above the windows, looks pretty enduro. I hope it makes it.

Everyone is banking on it topping out to the roof. Agree about it looking pretty in enduro. I donít think this is going to end well.

The word on twitter is that he (she?) is down-climbing. Four floors so far.

C'mon.

Rocky Racoon is downclimbing because he realized that modern people are st00pid.

They live in st00pid buildings that have windows that don't open due to fear of the st00pid people in them jumping out of them to their deaths.

The st00pid people in the buildings just drool looking out the windows far removed from reality and twittering on their st00pid phones.

Count how many st00pids in this post and multiply them by any st00pid number and you'll get the idea .....

I know that it is not that French guy in a raccoon suit because they were able to trap him on the roof with cat food instead of fois gras

He needs an agent.

Rocky Raccoon climbed up from his room
