Freddy Nock Auditions For Sound Of Music Sequel By Walking Up Cable Car Rope
He made it to the top of Germany’s 9,000 foot Zugspitze mountain in southern Bavaria. He says it’s the “longest and highest wire walk above sea level without a balancing pole“.
While the officials head to Ghana to check the value of that record, we hear you. Yep, Nock did not cross into free Switzerland from fascist Germany but left fascist Switzerland for free Germany.
As we say, this is The Sound of Music 2 – times have changed…
