'Up In The Air' ~ Sasipa Muennuch
Photographer Chris McLennan captures Johnny Tate’s 330 foot abseil into the Lost World Cave in New Zealand’s Northern Island.
Freddy Nock from Switzerland balances on the ropeway of a cable car leading to Germany’s highest mountain, the 9,718-ft. (2,962 m) Zugspitze, near the southern Bavarian resort of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, on Aug. 20, 2011. Nock balanced on the 3,264-ft. (995 m) rope to break his own world record, as part of a charity event.
It took the daredevil 90 minutes to complete the journey. Nock, who began his highwire career at the age of 11, said it was exhausting not using a balancing pole. The stunt was part of a week of challenges Nock undertook to raise money for Unicef.
