In this short video from Runaways Production House, four friends plunge deep into Australia's Blue Mountains to rig the first highline across Kanangra Falls, roughly 730 feet above the ground. The steps that help each man walk across the line differ, but as one slackliner tells himself: “Calm down. It's okay. Relax. Slow movement. Weight on front foot. One step after the other. Oh, and remember to breathe.”
