The Discovery Channel will air Nik Wallenda’s tightrope walk across the Grand Canyon live at 7 p.m. Sunday, June 23.

Details on the broadcast, provided by Discovery Channel, are as follows:

It will be one of the most daring and captivating live events in history — Nik Wallenda, known as “The King of the High Wire,” will traverse the majestic Grand Canyon, without using a harness at 1,500 feet above the Little Colorado River, a height greater than the Empire State Building. The tightrope crossing will take place in a remote section of the canyon operated by the Navajo Nation Parks and Recreation.
