Tightrope walking is dangerous enough, probably not the best idea to try it blindfolded AND walking backwards.

 

Chinese acrobat Aisikaier suffered minor injuries after falling from a high-wire 656 feet above the ground. He was 131 feet from the end of the 2,297 foot walk when he lost his footing and fell. Aisikaier was found by rescuers and brought to safety. He only suffered minor injuries.
