Back in 2010 when I moved to the Sacramento area, I was a bit worried that I would not be able to highline as frequently as I was before. For the past few years I had a set of dormant volcanos within walking distance of my home that I could go setup a highline on whenever I had spare time. Sacramento is as flat as it gets, not a mountain around. However, after a few hours of searching online, I soon discovered that the foothills of the Sierras were a short drive away. This very large area of land was riddled with potential locations that I could setup many different highlines. One place that stood out in particular was the Cosumnes River Gorge (CRG), which was just south of Placerville, just 40 miles East of Sacramento.
Cathedral spires, a gap that is so obvious when you enter the Yosemite Valley. Never before was it thought that it would be walked. This was mainly due to the astronomical amount of work it would take to get the line rigged, let alone the shear size of the line. However, these things weren't enough to stop Janek, Faith, Jordan, and I from wanting to get this monster up.
For the past month or so, Grant Thomspon and I have been establishing a new highline in a new area close to Davis. Four weeks ago we went to go scope this new area for line potential, and man oh man is there a TON of spots at this place! I am so excited to see this place get developed over the next few months/years with a bunch of new highlines. It's great because you can get some massive exposure fairly close to my hometown of Davis.
