Recently my friend Matt and I hiked up the Stawamus Chief in Squamish, BC and rigged a highline around 40 meters long. This has been a goal of mine for quite some time. So far it has been rigged three times, twice by Matt, that we know of. I’m proud to say that I got the second send.

We left it up for a bit, came back a few days later with a video camera and got this…

Beta:

Approach: From the Chief parking lots, walk up Shannon falls trail to the 3rd summit of the Chief.

Rigging: There are two bolts on the 2nd summit, as for the 3rd summit side, you have to equalize off of trees. We tied string to a rock and hucked it across. This can prove challenging.See more photos and read more about this on our Slackline.com Forums

Big thanks to Matt for the use of his gear and Ryan Warden for filming it.

Robin Avery lives in Vancouver, British Columbia. He enjoys climbing in Squamish, skiing, and slackline.

    Hey man,

    Can you get a hold of me about this highline?! I’d love to get out and give it a shot sometime… I’ve been on the chief lots but never slacklined out that way…

    this look like an adventure of a life time. A few friends and I would like to give THI a try. How do we get involved to give this an attempt?

    I saw this slackline on tv and wanted to know if you have to have your own gear and do it yourself or if there is someone in squamish who could be a guide and bring people up to do the slackline

    Thanks, Colton
