By now, multiple angles of American David Potter traversing the Enshi Grand Canyon in Hubei province are online, but no matter how you look at it — even knowing he successfully crossed the 40-meter canyon that’s 1,800 meters above sea level without falling to his death (because he was wearing no safety harness or parachute) — it’s still harrowing. A slackline, for those who aren’t familiar, is different from a tightrope in that there’s more stretching, like “a long and narrow trampoline,” says Wikipedia. Harrowing. Youku video for those in China after the jump.
The stunt has won him quite a few admirers in Hubei, as this local TV station show’s hosts point out (in Chinese).
