Tightrope time Tonight...Nik Wallenda crosses Chicago from above

Daredevil ready for Chicago skyscraper walk

The 35-year-old high-wire artist plans to perform two nail-biting walks that will be televised around the world Sunday.
The Discovery Channel will use a 10-second delay for the broadcast, allowing producers to cut away if Wallenda falls. He plans to perform the walks without a net or harness.
First, Wallenda will walk uphill at a 15-degree angle from the west Marina City tower to the top of a skyscraper on the other side of the Chicago River. Next, he'll walk between the two Marina City towers wearing a blindfold.

Follow all the behind the scenes and live action over at the Discovery channels website for the event... 'Skyscraper Live'... the crossings begin tonight at 7:00 / 6:00 central.
