Stuntman Walks Up Cable Car Wire

A Swiss stuntman has made a bid for a new tightrope walking record by scaling a cable car route up Germany’s highest mountain. Freddy Nock, 46, used neither a balancing pole or security harness as he scaled the two inch thick cable to the top of the 9,000 foot Zugspitze mountain in southern Bavaria. He gained some 1,113ft in altitude as he walked the 3,200ft long route, which took an hour and 20 minutes. He plans to submit his feat for entry in the Guinness Book of Records as the ‘longest and highest wire walk above sea level without a balancing pole.” w/ photo
