Professional daredevil Nik Wallenda has already developed a reputation for wire-walking across some of America's most famous dangerous drops.
And on Sunday, the daredevil successfully completed another incredible stunt: traversing three Chicago skyscrapers at heights over 500 feet, uphill and blindfolded.
Wallenda's walk, which was broadcast by Discovery, took him from the top of Marina City's west tower across the Chicago river to the top of the Leo Burnett Building, on an incline of 15 degrees. After that, Wallenda walked from Marina City's west tower to the east tower while blindfolded.
