A DAREDEVIL has smashed the world record for longest distance walked on a highline - tiptoeing a massive 375m. The drawn-out line, which was anchored between two limestone boulders at 100m above the ground, beat the previous record by 70 metres. Alexander Schulz, 23, from Germany, spent three days trying to cross the line - falling scores of times - while battling ferocious wind and rain. Alex and his co-workers from One Inch Dreams, a slacklining company, set up the line in Yangshuo, China, where towering rocks covered in jungle foliage inspired the filmmakers of science-fiction epic Avatar.
