A daring highline walker has set a stunning new world record for the longest ever highline walk.
German daredevil, Alexander Schulz, 23, battled wind and rain as well as a 375m long line when he took on the challenge 100m above the town of Yangshuo, in China.
Schulz spent three days working towards the record, falling a number of times, before he eventually beat the previous record by a quite incredible 70 metres.
Speaking after breaking the record, Schulz said: “The most important thing was to get away from the fear of failure in order to be fully relaxed and able to react to the oscillation of the line after smaller mistakes.
“The longer I was on the line, the harder it was to keep up the concentration.
“At the last third, wind came up and started shaking the line. I had to force myself to keep on walking. Thirty metres before the end the wind was gone, but the fear of falling came up like never before.
“When I touched the rock at the end of the line, my first words were ‘it’s surreal, I can’t believe what just happened.’”
