    Making it look pretty easy though.

    Pretty cool switching between all the cameras.

  • 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.
