Continuing the slacklife with yet another Jay Bird promotional video, Ryan Robinson and I payed a visit to one of my favorite desert lines which we established this previous summer together. During the original rigging of “Arch Nemesis,” Ryan had a lot of trouble staying on the highline due to its unfamiliar exposure, but upon our return and with a month of training behind him he came back with a vengeance and crushed it like a boss. We spent a total of two days re-rigging this gem and walking its length with happy repetition in front of a camera. In my opinion, this unique highline stands alone in the vast desert of Moab’s red rock country as a 5 star line for anyone psyched on esthetics and lengths of 170 feet. Seeing these ancient natural creations and interacting with their surrounding environment always leaves me with a greater sense of awe when confronted with natures unmatched ability to carve out ancient art in the landscape of Utah’s massive deserts. Its always an honor to walk amongst this beautiful place while exploring new heights and progressing our personal abilities to balance and create these human artistic expressions in space. This project made for another fun opportunity to present a tasting of Utah’s breath taking scenery and grandeur, which always seem to stretch on as far as the eye can see.
