Forces on the anchors during highline whippers at the Rostrum in Yosemite National Park

Do tight highlines or loose highlines create more forces on the anchor when you fall off and take a whipper. I volunteered to test this out by falling 3x on loose Skypilot webbing from SlacklifeBC and again 3x after tightening it. Results were very similar! This test is interesting if you are always wondering how much force your whippers are creating. Put in the comments if you like these kinds of tests or what tests you want to see in the future.

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
