5 steps in: "My shoes feel slippery. There's dust on this cable."

Making it look pretty easy though.

That was pretty awesome to see. Glad to see he made it to the other side. And he ran the last twenty yards or so - incredible!

Hard to imagine he can walk at all with balls that size, let alone on a tightrope wire across the Grand Canyon.

Hey, he's a Wallenda, they've been doing the impossible on wires for at least 3 generations.

The only true failure they have ever had was a couple of crashes attempting to do what they called "the seven". Seven members of the troupe stacked on a single wire. Killed several members.

Karl died in '78 in a fall. He was in his 70s I think.
