Here are some pictures of my friend and me slacklining after work today. I'm in the blue top and my friend is in pink hat. The only reason we had shoes on was because it was about 39 degrees and the ground was super wet. Enjoy

look up, notice this thread is in the SLACKLINING section of the forums. If you don't like slacklining, then don't post here. Seems pretty simple to me. It's not like he's posting this under trad climbing.

I swear, people are so desperate to show how cool they are by dissing stuff other people enjoy. I personally don't give half a shit about slacklining, but if someone had a fun time doing it and posting some pictures, more power to em.

To the guys sticking up for me thanks, to the guys who are too immature to post a respectable comment is just low. First of all im a climber i boulder, i sport climb and i slackline, downing me and my buddy for something we do for fun when not climbing is low, i enjoy it and don't care if you guys are 34 year old guys making fun of an 18 year old because you feel better about your pathetic life.

I'll see your shoes at 39 degrees and raise you barefoot at 28 degrees (12, with the windchill).

On the campus of the University of Wyoming, in Laramie. Those pics were taken the second week of February because I couldn't stay inside any longer. We couldn't get it tight enough to walk the whole way without scraping the snow near the middle mark. That was easily worst part.

You guys should have been at the Ouray Ice Climbing Festival.
I have no idea the actual temp but it was extremely cold, especially in the early morning highline runs.

It's a yearly event: http://www.ourayicefestival.com/ I highly encourage anyone wanting to give a highline a shot to try to make it to next years event. It looks like next year will be Jan 11th.

This year nearly everyone walked the line barefoot but next year I'm bringing my vibram five finger shoes - the line was painfully cold after the first 40-50 feet. I made the mistake of stepping both onto the steel platform barefoot and into the ice on the other side. Lesson learned: don't do that.

Some self-orientalizing from Majid? Edward Said is turning over in his grave.
