Daredevil crosses canyon on slackline
Daredevil Dean Potter balances a terrifying 1,800 metres above sea level — with NO safety equipment.
The barefoot American adventurer was snapped as he conquered China’s Enshi Grand Canyon in just three minutes.
He crossed the 41 metre long and two centimetre wide slackline without a harness or parachute.
And 40-year-old Dean even listened to music on his headphones as he made his stomach-churning journey.
Unlike a tightrope, a slackline can bounce or stretch at any time — making it even more dangerous.
But Dean — who starred in Channel 4’s Daredevils — is world-famous in the extreme sports community for his thrillseeking exploits.
In 2010 he completed the longest BASE jump ever — floating 9,000 vertical feet and nearly four miles in a specially designed wingsuit — from the summit of Switzerland’s Eiger mountain.
He has also scaled some of the world’s toughest rock faces without ropes or a harness. - www.thesun.co.uk
