Nathan Paulin, who made headlines in 2017 when he walked 2,198 feet on a slackline suspended between Paris’ Trocadero Square and the Eiffel Tower, set a new record for highline walking when he covered a distance of 7,218 feet over the Mont-Saint- Michel, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in France.
23 September (News) — A daredevil high-line walker broke a world record by walking nearly 1.4 miles on a suspended line at Mont-Saint-Michel in France.
Paulin’s walk was recorded by the camera company Insta360, which published the footage on YouTube.
Paulin said in an Insta360 press release that it was “almost impossible” to describe the feeling of walking the long high line.
“Sometimes I feel really strong when I’m doing this, but sometimes I also feel very small and I feel like I’m nothing. When I can do that, I feel free,” he said.
