      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Questions about slacklines everywhere @ Smith

Recommended Posts

Went to Smith last week, counted around 5 highlines stretched around the Park, including one on Monkey Face. 1 of them had a person on it during the time we were there.

 

Some of them have been up for a while, like the one across the gully right of Amphetamine Grip.

 

 

Is this something that is gonna cause rangers to crack down on fixed lines? Random hikers and tourists were definitely noticing them, feelings seemed mixed at best.

 

Since highliners are using the slackline as the only thing to catch them if they fall, are these lines getting degraded enough by UV that we are going to see some deaths?

 

Is leaving lines up the standard at other areas that people like to highline, such as Moab?

 

Last time I stayed at the bivy there were some long term slacklines up there as well, some stretched across normal campsites and trails. Kinda dickish.

 

Are slackliners going to be able to manage themselves as their user group grows? I really hope their carnival doesn't cause the rangers lose their chill and toolify.

Ask Dan Osman and Todd Skinner about what time does to ropes and harnesses. Unfortunately they are both dead.
