Default Who slacklines?

Yep, it's my newest addiction. Maybe I'll actually get better at it if I try enough times

Man you're nuts I've watched those guys doing it over the Box Canyon Gorge in Ouray. There has got to be an easier way to kill your self

Course they probably think the same thing when I'm throwing figure 4's on Bloody Sunday at the bottom of the gorge

Slacklineing over Box Canyon, Ouray




Throwing 4's (not me) on a climb similar to Bloody Sunday

Check out "Just Did Caveman" about 1/2 the way down the page.

I enjoy a good slackline now and then - but I like to keep it close to the ground.

Well, just so everybody doesn't think I'm TOTALLY nuts, I'm not highlining (yet). I'm only a couple feet off the ground. I don't really know why I'm into it now, all I know is that every time I come off of it I have a huge smile on my face, like this . I guess that's all I need.

But seriously it's good cross-training for balance and control for delicate maneuvers like when rock climbing. Also good for spacial awareness, and not to mention balance.

So figure 4's are when you swing your leg up to get a solid reaching "stance"? That's some pretty serious drytool work there...I like it. Gonna start with some more basic ice climbing this next winter, maybe some day drytooling will be within my abilities.

Drytooling is something you do in high school when you can't get a date

It's MIXED climbing !!! Jokn' with ya bro. Been waiting to use that one for years.

4's are left leg over right arm or visa-versa, 9's are same leg over same arm. Yea you use them to gain reach, plus you are hanging bone on bone and not relying on muscle to hold yourself up, kina like a lockoff. My problem is I'm getting so damn old that once I get in one, if I don't make the next placement I cant get out. I still can beat the 20 somethings though when we play highpoint.

When you're slacklining, how much slack do you leave. I've heard of it a lot but the only time I've seen it is in Ouray and they looked like they were tight rope walking?
