Filmed in August 2014, the 26-year-old was taking part in a highline festival which involved athletes from all over the world practising the vertigo-inducing discipline.

Ontario-born Spencer has been highlining for three years and specialises in 'free solos' which involve no safety equipment.

He said: “Shannon Falls is by far the highest waterfall I have ever walked over.

Filmmaker Ben Fraser used a drone camera to film the incredible athletes

“With so much motion going on between the tree we were anchored to and the water flowing beneath, it felt very alive, very different from highlining between two cliffs.

“I crossed the highline with no falls - I then removed my harness and walked free solo three times back and fourth.

Highliners from around the world came to participate in the unique event in Squamish, British Columbia.

“I actually organised the festival with friends. There were three official days but the lines were up and being walked for about five days.
