Daredevil Nik Wallenda has successfully tightrope walked between not two, but three skyscrapers as part of a blindfolded walk across the Chicago skyline.

The walk was split into two stages with the first leg stretching from the Marina Tower West to the Leo Burnett Building with Wallenda facing not only the Chicago river but also a steep 19 degree incline the entire way.

With the first leg completed he then had only two Marina City towers to walk between and he was done.

Of course that would have been too easy so to make things more exciting Wallenda did the second stage completely blindfolded.

What makes this frankly insane achievement all the more impressive is the fact that Wallenda did the entire thing without a harness or safety net.

The astonishing feat was accomplished in just over seven minutes.
