This past weekend, Frenchman Théo Sanson set a new world record for the longest highline walk when he completed a 550 meter (1600 ft) traverse between Castletown and the Rectory in Castle Valley, UT. This video was shot on Friday, November 13 as he was training for the attempt, and as you’ll see, it gives you a good look at the scale of what he was trying to achieve. During the practice round he slipped a few times, but on Sunday he managed to walk the entire line cleanly, setting the new distance mark in the process.
