funambulist

/fjuːˈnambjʊlɪst/
noun
A tightrope walker.

Origin
Late 18th century: from French funambule or Latin funambulus (from funis ‘rope’ + ambulare ‘to walk’) + -ist.

===========

Ray was proud of his skills as a funambulist, but he was working to become a funcurroist to run across the rope.
[One should probably note that unlike a baby learning to walk, it is far harder to crawl on a tightrope than walk (to be a funserperist).]
