How NOT 2 Rig a California Record Highline - 861 meters / Half Mile

This is the story of how the 861m (1/2 mile) long highline rigged earlier this year at Taft point in Yosemite. This gap was eyeballed by many over the years. It was thought to be impossible to tag a line across the chasms and around the large trees between side A and side B. After 5 days of hand tagging (no drones) by 14 people, we rigged the new California record highline in an absolutely beautiful location.
