The daredevil acrobat earned two new Guinness World Records on Sunday in Chicago, when he completed to tightrope challenges live on the Discovery Channel.

For the first challenge, Wallenda had to walk a tightrope uphill, at a 15-degree angle, between the Marina City west tower and a skyscraper.

Wallenda, who made headlines when he crossed a gorge in the Grand Canyon last summer, told the “Today” show he already has plans for more challenges next year. He said he hopes to walk on another rope 600 feet high and 1,000 feet long, but that’s not all…
