I had no idea this was happening. Was he initially going to do it without a harness?

I read he made it. Glad I didn't waste my evening watching that.

I watched him finish it. He has a little safety wire clipped to the big cable behind him. It was interesting to watch. I'd think the press lights and cameras would be more distracting than the water rushing below.
