How NOT 2 Rig a California Record Highline - 861 meters / Half Mile


This is the story of how the 861m (1/2 mile) long highline rigged earlier this year at Taft point in Yosemite. This gap was eyeballed by many over the years. It was thought to be impossible to tag a line across the chasms and around the large trees between side A and side B. After 5 days of hand tagging (no drones) by 14 people, we rigged the new California record highline in an absolutely beautiful location.

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.
