  • During Janek Galek and Jordan Tybon's trip to the US, they visited this new area that had never seen any highline activity. The post is called Castle Crags and it's situated very close to Mt. Shasta right off Highway 5. I've driven by this place quite a few times, but I never had a chance to to visit the place to check it out.

  • 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.

  • What a weekend this past weekend was! Chris, Preston, Ryan, Susan, and I decided we wanted to rig the 451 foot gap that we established the previous weekend. I got pretty close to sending the line the first time we rigged it with just 3 falls on one of my 6 crossings. I was very confident that I could get across this line with zero falls!

  • Just a regular day setting up our favorite highline at Cosumnes River Gorge. Chris Rigby and I just happened to run into a few reporters from NBC and ABC who were interested in getting footage of us on the line.

  • After months of preparation (mainly done by Chris Rigby), several weeks of planning, and coordination with many people, we finally put together our first Balance Community hosted slackline festival. Rightly named The Balance Community Backyard Highline Festival, it was an event to be remembered.

  • After nearly no planning, a group of friends from the Bay Area came into Sacramento this past weekend and we all setup 5 longlines. It was a great session that lasted most of the day. The park that we went to was completely covered in mud, which made it so no one else wanted to be there. We got the whole field to our selves, which worked out perfectly! The length and type of lines we had rigged are as follows:

  • Ever since I moved to the Sacramento area about 8 months ago, I have been itching to find some local spots to setup a highline. I was initially very skeptical about ever being able to find one because this area is so gosh darn flat! After reading up online about a few different climbing areas around Sacramento, I decided I would go checkout a few spots along the American River when it's quite rocky. After about 8 hours of driving around and scoping differents spots, I found the perfect place to rig an amazing highline. A few days after finding this spot, I had already measured the gap on Google Earth, set the anchor points with Chris, and gotten a team together to rig this baby. Unfortunately we had about 8 weeks straight of heavy rain fall that caused a major delay in the project. But once the weather was good, it was go time!
