The Beefcake on the Tightrope
Why? Because it's there.
Jerry Miszewski holds the world record, 704 feet across the Cosumnees River Gorge near Sacramento. It took 90 minutes.
Notice that he is attached to the line. An important safety precaution. Jerry fell 72 times before he made it all the way across.
At a more reasonable distance from the ground, tightrope walking is good for balance and coordination, skills useful in many sports.
Here Spencer Seabroke demonstrates the difference between a tight,rope and a slack rope. Slacklining is even more challenging, since the rope is swaying and adjusting more.
The line can be as slack as you want. More slack, more difficult to walk.
The Yoga Slackers travel the world, looking for interesting places to slack. And take their shirts off.
