Don’t try this yourself: last night, some passersby on the Stanley Park seawall spotted a tighrope walk stunt at the park’s iconic Siwash Rock, located between Third Beach and Prospect Point.

During sunset, the dare devil walked from the top of Siwash Rock to the westerly cliffs of Stanley Park.

The stunt was coordinated by SlackLifeBC, a group of young local slackline enthusiasts. They have posted a number of videos on their YouTube page of their slacklining attempts in the local mountains.

High winds were reported at the time, but the walk had to be performed at low tide in order for the walker to access the six-storey tall volcanic sea stack and secure a wire at the top.
