Nik Wallenda, the risk-taker who tight-roped across the Niagara Falls in 2012, will perform the same stunt again, but this time across the Little Colorado River Gorge in proximity to the Grand Canyon.

For his next feat, the 34-year-old high wire master will have viewers on edge as he estimated it would take him 30-minutes to complete the act.

Wallenda is already focused on conquering other famous attractions such as the Eiffel Tower and the pyramids in Egypt.

“We’ll see where my life path takes me… but those are big goals and ambitions that I’m definitely reaching for,” the Florida native said.

The daring stunt will be aired on Sunday (June 23) at 8 p.m. on the Discovery Channel.
