(CBS) — He’s been doing this his whole life, yet you might not be able to watch it without holding your breath.
Nik Wallenda will walk first from Marina City’s west tower to the Leo Burnett Building and then he’ll walk blindfolded between the Marina City west and east towers.
CBS 2’s Jeremy Ross reports the path of this daredevil stunt will take place more than 600 feet above the city.
Nik Wallenda, a seventh generation member of the Flying Wallendas, will walk tightropes across two separate areas battling the wind and gravity and he’ll so without a net.
His high wire journey will begin at 6 p.m. and one of his walks will include a 15 degree incline.
Wallenda said he originally had Willis Towner in mind, but there were concerns, including the height of that building.
