Here is a link to some pics of the lost arrow spire trip we did over the 4th of July. Both the classic line and the long one were rigged.

Cool pic. The line is practically invisible except for where it was taped, so the guy looks like he's walking on air :!:

No prob, Unc.

Yeah the lines were mostly green to blend in, but it was the noise of the nylon whipping in the wind overnight that could be heard all the way down at the base of the falls. (before the nylons were tightened)

You can see the long line blend in with the stone of the spire too.

As far as we can tell Corbin became one of very few maybe only 3 people to ever walk the long highline at the Spire, over the lost arrow chimney. This line is in the 120 to 130 foot long range, it is no joke.

Damian full-manned the classic line, measured at 52 feet long. Clay and Corb both played on the classic line for the 2nd year in a row, as did Robi.

Corbin busted out with a major trick session in the afternoon. This guy is becoming known for onsighting 100+ foot highlines in a swami belt, and then working those huge lines over in long trick sessions. UNREAL.

Corbin doing yoga almost 3000 feet off the deck: (picture taken from the lost arrow spire)

The Long Line measure out to a 110 ft. gap (stone to stone).

The Classic Line is 55 ft., again stone to stone (actually, exactly 54' 6", for the record, I measured it myself.)

V- I know, it's amazing how long that thing looked up there! I was thinking 130' or 140' myself!
