Walking a tightrope and maintaining your balance itself is an amazing accomplishment that takes tremendous skill and concentration. Ever thought about what it would be like to up the ante? That's exactly what 23-year-old Mich Kemeter does, similar to tightrope walking, but the rope is loose and bouncy, instead of taut, and elevated at extreme locations. He decided to highline without a harness at Yosemite National Park at 3,000 feet above ground. Kemeter walked 82 feet of rope three times with a safety harness attached to his ankle; he removed it on his fourth time. Midway through the walk, he even knelt to pray. Kemeter holds a number of world records, including walking on a 525-foot rope 25 feet above a freezing-cold lake in Austria.
