Slacklining is a practice in balance that typically uses nylon or polyester webbing tensioned between two anchor points. Many people suggest slacklining is distinct from tightrope walking in that the line is not held rigidly taut (although it is still under some tension); it is instead dynamic, stretching and bouncing like a long and narrow trampoline. The line’s tension can be adjusted to suit the user and different types of webbing can be used to achieve a variety of feats. The line itself is usually flat, due to the nature of webbing, thus keeping the slacker’s footing from rolling as would be the case with an ordinary rope. The dynamic nature of the line allows for tricks and stunts. — [wikipedia]

On the screen, a lone figure fords an icy stream and hopscotches across a high ridgeline. “What is it that inspires someone to fully commit?” asks a voice. It could be a soulful climbing documentary, but it’s not. The 25-minute film, Searching for West, stars Bozeman, Montana, bow hunter Mark Seacat, 34, and he’s clad from head to toe in the sort of soft-shell Gore-Tex fabric he wore on the two occasions he summited Denali. There’s one major difference, however: rather than the brilliant cardinal colors that stock the racks at REI, this stuff is patterned in splotchy digital camouflage.
