If you suffer from vertigo, seriously, look away now!

High wire artist Freddy Nock scaled the rope of a Feuerkogel cable car in Ebensee, Austria, 10,000ft up - without security!

The stuntman with nerves of steel is attempting to set a new world record by doing seven summits in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in seven days

Before his Austrian feat, Freddy walked up the rope of a Zugspitze cable car in Grainau near Garmisch-Partenkirchen, southern Germany.

Nock walked up the 995 metre-long rope, with an altitude difference of 348 metres, aiming at collecting money for the UNESCO.

It took him about 90 minutes to arrive on top of Zugspitze, the highest mountain in Germany.

Rather him than us...
