Baselining

A climber friend sent this to me. So, you wanna combine a rock-climber related activity (slacklining) with base jumping? Here's an instructional video. Sign me up! NOT. Just waiting for the day he falls too close to the rock and can't open his chute.
Oops, has to be a link.

So what he's doing is different than tight rope walking?

Yes. From a site: The basic idea is walking it like a tight rope. It behaves differently since the nylon webbing stretches and bounces under the slacker's weight and has a very "live" feel. Walking on webbing was used for a new type of concentration and balance exercise.
