This highline from hell will make you dizzy

Too nervous to try a slackline higher than a foot off the ground? Let Mich Kemeter take you there.

What does it take to traverse a 23m slackline, 200m above Yosemite Valley? According to Mich Kemeter, “confidence in the high line and inner balance!”

When the BASE-jumper, climber and, of course, slackliner nailed this crossing on the spire known as The Rostrum, the wind was calm and he had practiced a few times with protection before attempting a free-solo.

For Kemeter, it's all about control: “I always meditate a lot before I even think about a free solo,” he says. What's next? “I'm always looking for the next higher step towards the limit of human abilities with tools like inner balance, respect for life and a big smile for new challenges – like solo-BASE highlining or solo-BASE climbing. That means that the 'safety' I'll have will be on my back in form of a BASE-rig parachute!

We can't wait to see what he jumps off of next!
