Just saw an interesting post on UK climbing forum.
http://www.ukclimbing.com/...new=5890511#x5890511
have not read the whole thread - but seems some americans did some slacklining over there while on a climbing trip, and pissed a bunch of people off. Worth a read maybe - will read the whole thing soon.

Have there been any huge slackline controversies in the US? As a climber/slacker (doing more and more slacking) I was a bit surprised at the anti-slack sentiment on the post.

from what i could gather they weren't pissed off that people were slacklining, they were pissed off that people were placing new bolts in order to do it.

Yeah, the problem was that they bolted in a no-bolt zone. And right next to, as my friend put it, "a nut-swallowing crack".
