For those of you interested in slacklining, the new Alpinist Mag has a good climbing article written by Cedar Wright and mentions slacklining with a few pics of the Rostrum Gap. One of the pics shows RC.com favorite Ammon McNeely rigging a highline tether and the other is Cedar on the line.

Any other good slackline articles, photos etc. out there?

I think that Climbing (the magazine) had a highlining photo in one of their galleries, but that was a while ago. Haven't heard of any others recently.

There was a write up in National Geographic Adventure - October 2002 had a short article about slacklining. The caption is "Potentially Huge" by Kate Cheney.

It's short but she did a good job on the article (don't know if you can get back issues).

Also, Mark Synnott wrote up a good article and featured it in Unlimited summer 2002 - magazine, an underground mag that only gets out to a Marlboro mailing list (this mag was hard for even me to get my hands on).

Mark did a great job on it. It's worth checking out....if your lucky enough to find one.

Cheers, Ammon
