Slackliners

There are two kinds of people in the world.  Those who will walk on tightropes 7,000 feet above the ground and those who won’t.  I give you one guess which kind I am.  Still I am so fascinated by thrill-seekers – maybe even a little jealous of their chutzpah (though, on the flipside, I could probably crush them in any kind of timed eating contest).

Check out the gorgeous video from Slack & Run, a group of slackliners, who scaled the jagged rocks of La Réunion and then walked between them on what was essentially a long seatbelt.  (Their video sort of reminded me of these incredible action photos.)

There’s a subtle thumping in the soundtrack of the video, but I gotta be honest, at times I thought it was my own heart beating out of my chest.

Does anyone else think these guys don’t look old enough to be out without a babysitter?!

Would you do this?
