Video: Slacklining With Dean Potter

Where do you go to get a thrill after you’ve climbed some of the toughest rock routes in the world? If you’re Dean Potter, you move on to slacklining. In the video below, Dean is walking a tight wire, more than a 100 feet long, across an open chasm in Yosemite, without any kind of safety device. One misstep, and it is a long fall to the ground below. Crazy stuff, as usual, from Dean.

I’m not sure I get the whole slacklining/highlining craze. It seems like you’re just asking for trouble. Still, the video is unnerving the watch, I’ll grant you that.
