Over the course of the week, Nock successfully completed five of the seven accomplishments, including the longest and highest wire running down a valley in Switzerland. Over the course of a mile, he dropped nearly 2,000 vertical feet. One of his walks stretched for 2.2 miles.
After postponing for a day an attempt to walk for more than two miles on a wire high above a Swiss lake, however, he had to give up at about 1.2 miles because of wind gusts, though he still managed to walk on a rope above water longer than anyone ever had.
Winds also prevented Nock from biking nearly 500 feet across a wire between two cranes, more than 150 feet above the ground.
Born to a circus family, Nock took his first steps onto a wire at age four, according to his website. He started walking on high wires when he was 11.
