Yo,
I don't get how slack-lining has anything to do with climbing. It looks like you're just walking a tight rope. What's the point?

Funk, try it, and you'll find out. Go to Slacklinebrothers.com for info on how to get started. You don't have to do it the way they say to, but its a start.

That stuff is darn hard if you ask me. I think I'm going to set one up in the snow here so when I bail I have a soft cushion.

With anything that invovles balance practice does make perfect. Just like riding a bike, your body has to get used to the balance. I ride a unicycle also, and all i did was try it again and again. Then i stopped for alittle while, and started again, and i noticed i was much better. I have tried slacklining, and im in the process of just trying and trying.

webbing and two surfaces to tie it around. Practice practice practice. go about 2 feet up to start with, this will practice balance while having safe bails. and most important, HAVE FUN
