Andy Lewis on the Golden Spire Highline

 
Andy Lewis on the Golden Spire Highline

The Golden Spire Highline sits just outside Golden, CO; about a 20 minute drive from my location in Boulder.  There are now two lines bolted in this area and a third to soon be bolted.  The lines offer a beginner a great environment to explore and learn how to highline safely.

 

I was taken here by my friend Scott Rogers for the first time a few years ago, and the Colorado slackline crew loves this location for beginner highliners.  We recently took a trip the spire and I was amazed at how easy I was able to adjust to the exposure.  A line 25 ft long and 50ft high just isn't enough to scare me anymore!  Cheers to everyone who has enjoyed this line and I know this line will have more highliners come soon!
