A US daredevil has crossed the Enshi Grand Canyon canyon in China's Hubei Province on a rope just 2cm thick.

 

Slackline walker Dean Potter, who grew up in New Hampshire, traversed the 40m canyon at a height of 1800m above sea level, Chinese state media are reporting.

The feat was filmed and has been posted on YouTube.

Slackline walking is considered more challenging than tightrope walking, as the line is not held completely taut and is susceptible to stretching and bouncing.
