Dressed in a bright red body suit, Eskil Ronningsbakken, suspended himself above the Vettisfossen waterfall, 30 times across two days.
The steady-handed 35-year-old made a trip back to his home country for the feat, which he executed before a backdrop of breath-taking scenery.
Eskil, who lives near Barcelona in Spain, has had a passion for balancing ever since he was five-years-old.
He said: "I've never done anything but balanced.
“I simply went for my dream and did what felt right to me. I knew already when I was five years old what I was going to do in life.”
The Norwegian daredevil has been planning the stunt since October last year, and took on a one-hour hike to reach the location.
Whilst suspending his 85kg frame above the crashing water, the slightest tremble of Eskil’s body showed his staggering endurance.
He holds himself up from a ladder he says makes him feel as close as possible to flying.
Asked why he executed the stunt in a skin-tight red outfit, he said: “The suit is a thin bodysuit, which allows me to act equally to a naked person, but still being covered up.
“It also gives great flexibility and clean lines in the picture, and I always chose the colour according to the background to make the action as visible as possible.
“During the last ten years, this has become one of the characteristics, which makes people all over the world recognise my art.”
Eskil who performed the stunt earlier this month, has his sights on Angels Falls in Venezuela, and Burj Khalifa in Dubai for his next challenges.
