Why? Because It’s There
It’s time to conquer your fear of heights.
Love a good tightrope? How about one that takes you across an extreme
400-foot stone canyon? Just take it slowly. Very, very slowly. One step at
a time and remember to breathe. Or heave.
Why do it? Because it’s there.
Camping out in the gorgeous rocky landscape of Moab, Utah for a couple of days before setting up the wild and crazy adrenaline-spiking feat, YouTube phenomenon and camera aficionado Devin Graham, aka Devinsupertramp, was busy putting together this insane video while most of us are perfectly happy to take in the stunt from the safety of our sofas.
Making the whole production look easy, these guys go highlining over a massive crevasse while using some way cool toys like pickups and quadcopters and glidecams to get it done and get the film in the can.
What’s highlining? Devin describes it as tightroping—but without the pole. OK, it sounds mighty dangerous, but his team swears the setup is totally safe. Sure it is. That’s what they always say.
Devin explains it all in the behind-the-scenes video below.
Hmm … we think we’ll stay on solid ground, securely situated in front of our screens land eaving it to other insane daredevils to scale the high heights while shamelessly pimping Ford Explorers.
