This guy has some serious guts and is risking his life to raise money for UNICEF, incredible!

Daily Mail writes:

A daredevil stuntman has scaled a 10,000ft mountain – by creeping up a two-inch thick cable car wire.

Freddy Nock took 90 minutes to edge to the top of the Zugspitze mountain in south Bavaria – without any safety equipment.

Nock, who began his highwire career at the age of 11, said of his 3,000ft long trek: ‘I don’t want to do it again, not without a balancing pole. It was exhausting.’

The Swiss-born tightrope artist now plans to submit his feat to the Guinness Book of Records as the ‘longest and highest wire walk above sea level without a balancing pole.’

The stunt was part of a week of challenges Nock will undertake this week to raise money for Unicef.

He said: ‘I will attempt seven records during this week. It has everything, incline, to walk down a cable car, walk across a lake that is more than three kilometers, which in the highest mountain area, in the Jungfraujoch in Switzerland, that is more than 3,800 meters high, higher than this one.’
