High wire artist, acrobat, and all-around daredevil Nik Wallenda is gearing up for his attempted walk across the Little Colorado River Gorge. And what have you done today?

As NewsFeed reported previously, the 34-year-old — who’s been tightrope walking since he was a toddler — will attempt to walk across a two-inch thick (two-inch thick!) cable strung 1,500 feet (1,500 feet!) above the river. For context: that’s higher than the Empire State Building.

Watch this live stream, courtesy of the Discovery Channel, beginning at 8 p.m. ET. If all goes according to plan, the feat should take about a half hour.
