The man who did it between the Twin Towers was way more impressive.

Not sure it's "way" more impressive.

The thing not to forget is that the harness never came into play. It's not like Wallenda leaned into it or got any kind of support from it. Also, his cross was far longer than Petit's.

True, I would pick Petit because of all the stuff he did while on the wire....but it's not "way" more impressive. Don't forget how wet the rope was for Wallenda for half the walk either.

Don't really care about circumstances.

Whether or not the harness came into play, it was there.
