This tightrope was the one daredevil Karl Wallenda died on. Absorbing the fear of the moment, anyone wrapped in the rope will have the fear of falling from 100 feet onto pavement.

Karl Wallenda (January 21, 1905 – March 22, 1978) was the founder of The Flying Wallendas, an internationally known daredevil circus act remembered for performing death-defying stunts, often without a safety net.

Despite being involved in several tragedies in his family's acts, Wallenda continued with his stunts. In 1978, at age 73, Wallenda attempted a walk between the two towers of the ten-story Condado Plaza Hotel in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on a wire stretched 121 ft (37 metres) above the pavement, but fell to his death due to faulty wiring, that were not set up by any of the Wallenda family, as they could not attend Karl's walk that fateful day. The Wallenda family attributed the tragedy to misconnected guide ropes and not the windy conditions. A film crew from WAPA-TV in San Juan taped the fall, and the video, featuring anchorman Guillermo Jose Torres' narration of the fall, circled the world.


At a daredevil museum, multiple staff members were found dead in the museum with deep marls from a steel cable. The one using the rope was using it against members of the board that wouldn't use allow him to use the museum for his wedding. While using the Corsican Vest to reverse the sensation, Brady managed to snag the tightrope and take it to the warehouse where it sits in the fear section.
