Slackliner Nathan Paulin has wowed French residents by completed a 600-metre crossing from the Eiffel Tower to the other side of the river Seine.

The slackline was suspended 70 metres above the ground.

At one point Paulin sat and lay down on the the rope before arriving at the Chaillot Theatre at the end of the half hour performance.

Paulin said Saturday’s feat followed four years of practice, not to mention overcoming his childhood fear of heights.

In 2019, the Frenchman conducted a 150-metre-high, 510-metre-long slackline walk between two skyscrapers at Paris’ La Defense business district.
