Temp Rules on Going High at Smith Rock

That’s GOING high, as in highlining.

The park staff has been meeting with federal and state wildlife biologists, local highlining community representatives, and public land use managers.

They’ve even reached out to the staff at Yosemite National Park to come up with the following temporary set of rules as of February 27, 2016 that impact highlining and slacklining.

Here you go:

1. Temporary moratorium on new lines as of 2-27-16 (as impact studies continue)

2. Tensioned lines must be attended. (safety issue primarily)
