From the Buffalo News:
With workman-like precision, Jay Cochrane put one soft-soled shoe four inches in front of the other across 1,300 feet of wire some 581 feet above the ground to walk into the record books Friday.
The acclaimed wire-walker made the 31-minute trek from the Skylon Tower to the Hilton Fallsview Hotel’s north tower, setting the North American record for the longest and highest skyscraper-to-skyscraper walk.
Unlike Nik Wallenda, who captured the world’s attention June 15 by walking across Niagara Falls, Cochrane did not wear a tether.
He will be repeating the feat nightly until Sept. 24.
