Relive Just Enough of Nik Wallenda’s Nerve-racking Tightrope Journey

Now that it’s over, there’s no need to re-watch daredevil Nik Wallenda’s entire, 22-minute trek across the Little Colorado River Gorge, near the Grand Canyon. But in case you missed the live broadcast, there’s enough video online to give a taste of how nerve-wracking it was. Wallenda prayed to Jesus approximately 40,000 times during the walk, and crouched down to his knee twice as winds buffeted him. But he made it, and he even trotted the last few steps. The point-of-view footage is especially dizzying, so if you have anything approaching vertigo, go ahead and skip that one.
