After climbing some mountains above 4000 m and acclimatizing they set up a base camp at 4800 meters. In a mostly unpleasant weather the team has spent here several days waiting for the best time. They had finally been given some fine interval to climb 400 meters above their base camp to reach their planned destinatation and to cover the 21 m distance with an amazing and very picturesque slackline show.
