Highliner walks 1,000ft in air without harness

Got a fear of heights? Don't look now - because this intrepid traveller clearly isn't troubled by vertigo!

This incredible footage shows daredevil Spencer Seabrooke balance along a thin slackline suspended over the beautiful Shannon Falls in British Columbia, Canada.

A group of highline enthusiasts from North America came together for the second annual Squamish Highline Festival.Videographer Ben Fraser captured the action first hand.

The first place the group tackled was The Chief, one of the largest granite monoliths in the world.

The group set up highlines across the 100ft crevice, 656ft above the ground and the spectacular footage shows the thrill-seekers taking it in turns to walk the line.

One woman is even seen doing the splits on the highline while twirling batons with her hands.

A little later one man can be seen throwing himself backwards off the line, but don't panic because this guy was wearing a harness!

Amongst the group of people taking part was extreme sports enthusiast, Spencer Seabrooke. The 27-year-old from Peterborough, Ontario says: "It feels good to be a little bit scared and be a little bit unsure but then tell yourself that you can do it."

The second site that the group went to was Shannon Falls which is where Spencer took on the ultimate test of faith, crossing the highline 1,099ft in the air... without a harness.

Luckily the plucky Canadian easily makes it across and even has the time (and bravery) to drop down and hang from the line with just one hand.

Spencer who says he's "addicted" to the highline life says it feels really good to put himself to the test in these terrifying conditions.
