Talk about not your usual excursion to the desert: A B.C. woman has smashed the world record for the longest highline walk.

Vancouver-born and Nelson-raised, Mia Noblet crossed a 493-metre gap 120 metres up in the air on November 13 in Castle Valley, Utah.

The previous record? It was Noblet’s, too–an August, 2016 cross of 222 metres in Hunlen Falls, B.C.

Noblet initially trained in her youth as a figure skating, practicing out of the Richmond Olympics Oval, according to her SlacklifeBC bio. However, the now-22-year-old met some members of SlacklifeBC rigging lines in 2015 in Vancouver, and decided to give her longtime dream a try.

Fast forward to now, and Noblet has just set this impressive record.

Check out a few more shots of Noblet in action:
