Info from Licensor: "Aspiring pro slackliner, Greg Fishell, stomps a 100-foot highline 400 feet above the canyon ground in Moab, Utah. A'highline' is a term used to describe a slackline that is rigged from a cliff edge or building edge. The danger level of walking a highline is also escalated, as the slacker, the person walking the line, is high above the ground making the chances of getting injured much greater. Greg is tethered in by a harness, hence providing a figurative safety net should Greg fall. However, should the slackline lose its integrity and break due to weak fibers, or should the anchors that secure the slackline detach, Greg would fall 400 feet to his death. The practice of slacklining is described by many extreme sports athletes as the scariest extreme sport. Simply balancing on a slackline is hard enough, but to also be able to remain calm and collected while walking the line requires extreme focus. You have to black everything out of your mind and focus on every single step."
