What is Slacklining?

Slacklining is the act of balancing along a narrow, flexible piece of webbing which is low to the ground and usually anchored between two trees. Originating in the climbing world, slacklining has evolved into a cross trainer, backyard activity and sport all of its own.

I live near Washington Park and noticed a group of people trying to balance and then walk on a narrow line, I immediately thought photo opportunity! Melissa Hamilton, Rae Baker, Sam Sullivan, Brett Fiedler and Mary Jo Waterbury were the ones attempting the acrobatics and all agreed that Melissa was the expert. Melissa is a yoga instructor here in the Wenatchee Valley.

Slacklining does look monumentally difficult, but I will say this in the short time I was there people went from balancing a few seconds to actually taking a few steps.

In some of the shots you can see a line above the slackline, Melissa informed me that she called that the cheat line, which enables you to study yourself...at my age I call that a lifeline!
