The Fort William Mountain Festival hosted a historic coming together of some of the world's most devoted and skilled slackliners. These "slackers" gathered in Scotland to compete for the title of International Slack Master of 2008. Along with the title came the promise of over $3000 worth of cash and prizes to ensure a sizzling competitive fire. With the continuously progressive evolution of slackline style and frequent updates of the purposed physical limits of the sport-- no one knew what types of talent to expect.
On July 13, 1985, Scott Balcom became the first man in the world to walk across the Lost Arrow Spire Highline. A towering 2890 feet (880 meters), above the valley floor. 22 years and 3 days later, Libby Sauter became the first woman to cross the lost arrow spire highline. This has become the most coveted highline in the world. Congratulations to Libby!

In early November the Varsity Outdoor Club (VOC) at the University of British Columbia, where I attend, organizes a climbing trip to Smith Rock in Oregon. Smith Rock is one of those epic places you have to visit at least once in a lifetime. It's a sport climbing Mecca of sorts, a place where sport climbing was popularized in North America. The park is pretty accessible for the day traveler so it sees a lot of tourist traffic. For the life of me I don't know why Smith Rock isn't a National Park. It's a pretty small place considering the amount of bolted sport climbs it hosts.
Day 1: After the obligatory phaffing around, time wasting, etc... We
started driving from Vancouver, B.C. around 3 pm. Arrive at the US
border. We stop to use the washroom, and the Canadian Border Guards
swarm in. Perhaps we got profiled? I guess an Insane amount of
miscommunication lead to our friend getting detained, long story short,
we have to leave him behind...in the end the Royal Canadian Mounted
Police showed up, and they let him go. We never did figure out what
happened in the first place. Worst of all he had to take the bus back
to Vancouver from the border.
One man down...
