Highlining grew out of a similar activity known as slacklining.
Walk the line
Get your heart racing walking lines above a beautiful expanse of canyons and natural arches in Moab, Utah.
The region has more slacklines than any other area in the country. Distance and free solo records have
been broken in Moab, and dozens of the area’s sandstone peninsulas and
natural bowls are fixed with at least 10 highlines each.
Lake Tahoe’s slacklines are a combination of waterlines—the longest being 233 feet—and alpine lines.
Not only can you enjoy the slacklining elements of this area, but to reach most you need to embark on a hike.
While you’re there you might as well camp to get the full adventure experience.
In Aiglun, France, on Tuesday, April 19, the highliner and balance athlete Nathan Paulin, along with Danny Menšík,
set a new record for the longest slackline ever, just over one kilometer (3,346.5 feet, or nearly two-thirds of a mile).
