Last week saw an awesome day go down on the Totem Pole. A little while a go a friend of a friend put another friend in touch with me to see if I would help out on his little idea. After swapping some emails plans were soon made.
Florian Herla is a gun highliner and was super keen on setting up the highline between the summit of the Totem Pole and the mainland. He recently did a pretty impressive effort at hanging rock to boot.
Steve Monks was down and keen to revisit his old climb, and my mate Matt Scholes was down doing some work with me. We would be the motley crew climbing the beast of a tower to rig the highline.
All things went smoothly and the line was rigged sometime in the early afternoon.
What followed was the most impressive display of mastery I’ve ever seen. Florian jumped straight on and smashed out a few laps. His friend, Leon, had also come down to have a crack. It had been a while between drinks for him, but he also cruised the line with style.
Enjoy the photos from the day:
