I was wondering if it's possible to set a high-line up alone or is there something more to it that i can't foresee (forsea? forsee? foresee?) at this point in time?

Asking that question suggests that you might be better off finding an experienced highliner to set up with the first few times. Setting up and walking a highline puts your physical well-being and possibly life on the line. There are a number of subtle things you could do wrong that could get you killed.
I say this never having highlined, but with a fair understanding of what it would take to set one up, and what it would take to walk one. I'd like to set up a highline when I'm ready, but I'm going to wait until I can hang in a harness under the line, out of reach of the line, get up to the line, mount it, and get to a standing position, before I think about setting up a real highline. Then I'll want to understand the anchor system pretty damn well, and have one or two people around who understand the system also.
Be safe!

hmm, would you recommend your 3:1 or the 9:1 system for highlining that you have shown on your website?
