Yosemite video shows Mich Kemeter highlining 3,000 feet up without safety harness

We thought Alex Honnold was crazy when he attempted to scale a 1,600-foot rock face in Yosemite National Park using nothing more than his hands and feet. No ropes. No safety net. No brains.

“60 Minutes” captured this craziness that keeps you on edge even though you know he makes it to the top without falling. Now comes daredevil adrenaline junkie Mich Kemeter, who is no less crazy than Honnold.

After crossing a 99-foot-long, one-inch-wide rope at Taft Point, Yosemite, three times with a safety harness, Kemeter decided to do a free solo highline over the same rope -- 3,000 feet above the ground!

No safety harness, no net...no brains.

The UK Daily Mail  has more of the story about the 23-year-old Australian, but you can see it here in this Vimeo video:




As someone says in the background, “Holy Toledo, that is unbelievable.”

Yes it is.
