An anti-abortion activist scaled the 61-floor Salesforce Tower in San Francisco Tuesday morning before being arrested as he reached the top of the skyscraper.

Police said Maison Deschamps, 22, of Las Vegas was arrested for trespassing and resisting arrest following his free-climb up the side of the 1,070-foot tower, the tallest in the city.

Deschamps says he’s scaling buildings to bring attention to his cause.

Police said citizens flagged down officers at about 9:21 a.m. to inform them someone was climbing the tower.

Deschamps continued to scale the building and eventually reached the top at about 10:50 a.m.
