Balancing act: Swiss tightrope walker Freddy Nock climbs the 3,264-foot-long cable car line on top of the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest peak, near Garmisch-Partenkirchen, southern Germany, on Sunday. Nock gained 1,141 feet in altitude during the feat, which took him 50 minutes. Nock used the climb to raise more than $19,000 for charity.
