Apologizes for the repeat.. check this one out if you've already seen the falling one, some highball slack lining.

Absolutely no need to apologize. This is the first time I've seen it and I'm a regular poster.

Yes don't apologize... I've not seen it either - and anyway, everyone hates highpilgrim around here...

I couldn't find the link last night. Here it is:

It doesn't look as if the vid is current.

Definitely planning on Leadville and Imogene.. We'll have to plan a few big elevation training runs in early spring. Hope the tenmile/Mosquito Traverse was successful, I was disappointed I couldn't join. Looking forward to a trip report!

High Five!
