Canadian Jay Cochrane walks above the Pearl of the Orient Tower in Shanghai, China as he accomplished a world record for the highest and longest nighttime building-to-building wire walk on September 24, 1996, during the Shanghai Tourism Festival.

The skywalk and Festival showcased the newly designated Pudong empowerment zone in Shanghai's redevelopment of the slum area into an economic powerhouse of high rises and waterfront development. The Pearl of the Orient Tower, was completed in 1994 and designed to make the viewer think that pearls are dropping onto an jade plate.

This was my second trip to China with Jay Cochrane, his follow up to The Great China Skywalk in 1995 in Qutang Gorge, one of the legendary Three Gorges of the Yangtze. Watching Jay glowing above the Pearl of the Orient was one of the most majestic views I have ever witnessed, You were only able to see the cable in the spotlight. Jay told me afterward that most of the time he couldn't see anything, he walked by total feel. That description helped convince us all two years later when he skywalked blindfolded in Las Vegas.

Visit the new, and celebrate the 20th Anniversary of THE DECADE OF SKYWALKS above Niagara Falls, Canada.
