“The stakes don’t get much higher than this,” said Wallenda. “The only thing that stands between me and the bottom of the canyon is a two-inch thick wire. I’m looking forward to showing the audience a view of the canyon they’ve never seen before.”
Wallenda’s Niagara Falls walk was the first of it’s kind. The treacherous falls surging 200 feet beneath him did not deter him as he walked delicately to safety with only . The Grand Canyon is a very different place, and could provide very different challenges. This time, suspended over 1,500 feet about the Colorado River. To make things even more challenging and risky (if it wasn’t risky enough for you), Mr. Wallenda will be crossing the Grand Canyon without the aid of a safety harness! Wallenda had planned on not using a harness for his Niagara Falls walk, but was forced into wearing one at the last moment. You can catch Nik’s death-defying stunt on June 23rd.
