The Terrifying Art of Free Solo Slacklining UNTETHERED….a film by Levi Allen

I heard a story on the radio about pro football players who had retired before 1993 and the small retirement benefits they receive.

It was Hall of Famers….living at poverty level….unable to pay for their funerals.


That was pretty bad.

These guys do it for the thrill.

They do it because they love what they do….and love life.

There’s no retirement package for a slackliner.

I’ve walked a slackline a couple of feet off the ground before….for a couple of steps….and…it’s pretty darn hard.

For me, at least, it’s pretty darm (!) hard.

I’m terrified to get up on the house and do roof repairs.

I’d be afraid to do this.

But…enough about me.

Watch the video….it’s a good one.
