Slacklining at Moab: Awesome or Crazy?

Pilgrimages to the desert are a spring tradition for mountain dwellers. Peter Hudnut and friends Jeremy Shive and Josh Simpfenderfer went to Moab last month in search of dry earth and made the above video from their adventures.

Slacklining is the pastime in which climbers practice walking on a rope or webbing slung between two trees. The logical progression is to highlining, which involves dizzying heights and often spectacular canyons below.

Peter and friends visited seven locations, some of them never rigged or walked before. Although they are roped up for safety, their shuffling is, as the title implies, still pretty mad.
