Minnesota Public Radio reporters and occupants of the building posted pictures and updates on the animal - dubbed the #MPRraccoon - as it scaled the rough surface of the skyscraper in true Spider-Man style.
Laurie Brickley, spokeswoman for the St. Paul Animal Control Department, told BuzzFeed News all the attention might have spooked the raccoon, causing it to stand pat and not move from its spot.
A Minnesota radio station branded the raccoon with the hashtag #mprraccoon. According to MPR, the little daredevil was able to reach the roof of the building by 2:45 a.m.
The MPRRaccoon also became the source of anxiety for Twitter users Tuesday, as people feared for his safety and wondered how in heck he would ever get down. Before long, a Twitter account for the climbing critter was created, and an Internet star was born.
The raccoon was first spotted on a ledge Tuesday morning, just a few floors high.
