High Wire Artist Freddy Nock’s 7 Days Challenge – Photos

High wire artist Freddy Nock from Switzerland is trying to to set a new world record by doing seven summits in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in seven days.

His “7 records within 7 days” is part of a UNESCO charity event.

I think that what he is doing is very dangerous.

Can he do it?
