This 500-Meter Slackline Walk In Utah Will Make Your Palms Sweat

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s a slackliner walking across a tight rope tied between two rock formations in a magnificent Utah desert.

In what is clearly an insanely impressive stunt , French daredevil Théo Sanson walked nearly 500 meters on a slackline rigged from The Rectory to Castleton Tower in Castle Valley, Utah -one of the world’s most spectacular desert landscapes –  likely creating a new world record.

You can clearly see him walking and balancing himself on the tight rope as he moves towards Castleton Tower.

Sanson says on his website he would “rather die from passion than boredom” and describes his endeavors by saying: “Walking on a line has always scared people to death, and that’s normal… I’m still afraid to die, but what would be life without risk?”

This video will give you chills. See it for yourself.
