Amazing. 46-year-old Freddy Nock, a Swiss stuntman, successfully walked this 1,000 meter long cable car cable Saturday that runs up to the summit of Bavaria's 9,000 foot tall Zugspitze mountain. Without a balancing pole or harness. That's ballsy.

He plans on going for the world record for highest tightrope walk ever. I think he got it. Meanwhile, I know people who can barely make it down the street without falling. This guy balanced his way up a mountain. [Telegraph, Photo Credit: AP Photo/dapd, Joerg Koch]

Arggh! there goes a...snake a snake!

The crazy thing too is that he's walking 300 meters, on a tightrope, on a pretty steep incline. I'm sure that adds a whole other degree of difficulty because you start getting really tired.
