Man Tightropes Across A Canyon

posted by BC - 

World-famous slackliner and Daredevil 'Sketchy' Andy Lewis continues to live up to his name as he attempts 260 meters (780ft) highline. 

Highlining is the modern day version of tightrope walking but without the use of a balance pole. This highline is especially unusual as one end of the slackline is anchored to a web-like structure that is suspended 450 feet above the canyon. This web structure, also known as 'The Spacenet', is the brainchild of Andy and inspired by the Ewoks of Star Wars who's civilization lived in trees. As a spectator, it takes your breath away as Andy stands up and takes his very first step. And even though he is anchored in, he has hundreds of feet to walk out to his destination, and there are hundreds of feet below him. If the slackline were to rupture, Andy's harness would not be enough to save him from falling to his death. After a few falls, Andy manages to make it out to the Spacenet. An impressive sight!"
