The Parisians were amazed: the man was balancing over their heads. The artist had run a rope from the Eiffel Tower up the Seine.
Amazing high wire ParisAcrobatic Nathan Boleyn from Eiffel tower Balanced from a 670-meter rope link across the Seine to the Théâtre National de Chaillot on the other bank. This Saturday feat was part of events across France marking National Heritage Day. The theater’s dance troupe organized a delicious show accompanied by music, which was repeated on Sunday afternoon.
The starting point was the Eiffel Tower for professional hikers with wires towering at a height of 68 metres. Then he crossed the Seine to reach the theater tower at a height of 56 metres. The management of the Eiffel Tower declared it the longest high-wire connection in an urban area.
The road was first opened in 1989
The artist and high-end world champion had already beaten the connection on the rope in 2017. Another high-wire specialist completed the stunning track for the first time in 1989 to celebrate the centenary of the Eiffel Tower.
For Nathan Boleyn, balancing out Paris at the end of 2019 meant at least as much excitement. At a height of 150 metres, the 27-year-old crossed a 510-meter rope between two skyscrapers in Paris.
