Andy Lewis Completes World Record Highline

 
Andy Lewis Completes World Record Highline
 
October 26, 2010 - 
 

Andy Lewis completed the first EVER send as well as the first EVER continuous full man walk of the first ever 100m highline, higher than it is long, on September 10, 2010!

 
 

At ~340 ft long and ~360 high it definitely fits the definition of a highline (line higher than long.) Rigged with two pieces of 1" vectran, tensioned to 3,500lbs, with a Line Grip (SlackPRO!) and a chain hoist; Ryan Matson and I had it walkable in under 2 hours! Thanks to my friend Chris who hooked me up with the dyno that measure the tension! Thanks to FIVE TEN! Many days of rigging, hiking, baking in the sun, and replacing busted gear lead to my greatest failure on this same line earlier this year in April. The failure haunted me for five months until this day... and let me tell you, it felt dam good to step on the other side!

This is just the beginning of a new era of highlining slackers! May we all find the deepest exposure soon!
