Did anyone see this last night? It was incredible! :shiny: And a little scary. I can't find the full video anywhere unfortunately. :(

OMG!! That is incredible! I would be terrified! How could he do that with no rope or safety thing?!
Awesome quotes:

"Fear is not evil, it tells you what your weakness is. Once you know your weakness you can become stronger as well as kinder." -Gildarts Clive, from the anime Fairy Tail.

"Awww," Minho said, "That's almost as sweet as that time she slammed the end of a spear into your shuck face." -Minho, from Death Cure.

Will: "But I thought..."
Gilan: "Never say that in front of Halt. He'll simply reply, 'You're an apprentice. You're not ready to think,' or 'If you thought about it, you wouldn't ask'." -The Ranger's Apprentice Book 1, The Ruins of Gorlan.

He did have a safety thing on, but that was it. But I know, it was so incredible! :shiny: I would never have the courage or the craziness to do that.

I watched it. It was pretty cool. I'm surprised that he manage to pass the middle section or even get up the "hill" part. You know that he manage to get a permit to cross the Grand Canyon?

Yeah, I heard that was his next mission. Though personally, I think after Niagara Falls, it won't be as much of a challenge. I don't know, it may depend on where he does it.

I think that the only challenge for him would be the heat. Seeing that he'll be over the rocks and the heat would rise and sun is beating down on him. Of course, if they do it live again around the same time, then maybe the heat wouldn't be so bad......
