Tightrope daredevil Nik Wallenda pulled off a heart-stopping stunt over the weekend as he walked between three skyscrapers in Chicago on a high wire that was over 500 feet in the air.

Just in case the thing wasn't difficult enough, there was an 19° incline between the first two buildings and he completed the second part of the stunt blindfolded and all of that was done without a harness or safety net. Writing that sentence has left us dizzy.

It's a frightening watch but it's hard to look away.
