Steepness isn't something I usually go for but just for fun I have walked low to moderate angle guy wires... it's freeking harder than it looks, I never make it past like 20 feet up before smacking the ground.

attempting guy wires are always fun but its usually too hard for me..

i thought this angle was going to be way harder that it was, the walking ws easy, your fine until you get a couple of feet from the end of the line and to the top of your ancor-- then all that mental stuff starts "wait.. this is way too steep for me- im way too high" :tinfoilhat:


but as far as highest angle-- what do you think this is like 20or 30*..? it can get steeper-much steeper.. :twisted:

either i find higher poles, or poles that are closer together.. i think i'll try for some closer poles,,

but hey, at least the passer-byes get a kick out of the height..

How about putting some Moose Juice(Binding lubricant) on your feet and sliding back down? That would be awesome :D
