From the Buffalo News:
Wire-walking history is about to be made again at Niagara Falls.
Jay Cochrane begins the first of his 80 death-defying walks between two hotel towers this summer at 7 o’clock tonight in Niagara Falls, Ont. When he does, he will also be performing the longest (1,300 feet) and highest (581 feet) building-to-building wire-walk in North American history.
Unlike Nik Wallenda, who walked across the Niagara Gorge on June 15, Cochrane won’t be wearing a tether. He will be suspended 60 stories above pavement on an inch-wide wire while holding a 40-foot-long balancing pole.
