Daredevil tightrope walker, Nik Wallenda completed his greatest feat yet. he walked across the Grand Canyon on a tightrope without a single harness.

The aerialist comes from a long line of daredevil performers.His great grandfather passed away during a tightrope accident a few decades ago in Puerto Rico. Nik attempted the same stunt a few years ago with his mother and was successful!

Nik had the idea to cross the Grand Canyon when he visited there as a teen. However, it took a long time to make the walk a reality. The team that made it possible for Nik to take the walk had to either fly or truck everything to the super remote location. With no roads nearby that was quite a challenge in itself.
