    And finally... an act of skill on the peak of one of China's most famous mountains. A man from Norway put his balancing skills to the test on Sunday... as anxious onlookers watched the spectacle.

    Extreme balancing artist Eskil Ronningsbakken presented a pulsating show at Mount Tai Sunday in eastern China's Shandong Province.

    The stage was made with iron metal pole bars coupled with a wooden platform board placed on the cliff of the mountain.

    His exploits included the 'Ballet in Air', 'Swing in Air', 'Riding Bicycle Backwards' and 'Balancing Chairs' during which he had stacked up three wooden chairs on top of one another, then proceeding to doing a press handstand on top.

    Ronningsbakken carried out the acrobatic performances without any safeguards in place.

    "I was really impressed by his performance, and I found he's really a brave guy, his performance requires great strength both mentally and physically."

    Ronningsbakken says he felt nervous at the beginning, and as time went on, he became more and more comfortable.

    [Eskil Ronningsbakken, Daredevil]:
    "It felt very good. In the beginning I was a little bit nervous, because I was new to this bike, meaning, I got the bike yesterday, so I had very short time to do any adjustments, but then as soon as I was through and done with the bike, I felt good, and it was going the right way."

    Eskil has been honing his balancing skills since he was a child.
