Spencer Seabrooke Sets a New World Record for the Longest Free Solo Slackline

When I watched Spencer going for a free solo world record in BC I was left breathless at the sight. Looking down from nearly 1,000 feet above the ground into the void of the Squamish Chief known as the North Gully when a drone captures Spencer in the middle of crossing a long gulf left me wonder, who else would have the balls to rig a rope here and cross the 210-foot gap without being attached to the line. No one, and that's why Spencer not only gets our respect, but scores a world record that goes down to the slackline history books. Mad!!!

Spencer broke a world record by walking 64 meters (210 feet) on a highline mounted 290 meters (951 feet) above the ground in British Columbia on August 2nd 2015, and there were some nerve-wracking moments for sure - he stumbles twice but catches himself with ease (at least that's our impression of it). After all, you have to be prepared before setting your foot on such line.
