A FEARLESS daredevil tiptoes his way across a 12 metre highline suspended between two hot air balloons, 4000ft above the ground. The record-breaking stunt was completed by professional slackliner Andy Lewis - nicknamed 'Sketchy Andy' - in the Nevada Desert. Lewis completed a series of practice runs at 10ft and then 600-700ft before ascending to altitude for his record-breaking attempt. A French team known as The Skyliners had attempted a similar feat three weeks earlier, but it was Lewis who held his nerve to balance his way into the record books. The video of the successful stunt was released to promote the launch of the new online adventure network the Limitless Channel. For more information see:
