Highline at Sacramento TBS6
The Sacramento Pipeworks version of TBS 6 went off without a hitch last Friday the 17th. This competition was its typical extraordinary blend of climbing, food, drink, prizes, games and spectacle. Over 200 people turned in scorecards, eclipsing the last bouldering series at Pipeworks by more than 40 people.
Thanks go out to Mason Daly who offered demos of Evolve
climbing shoes, as well as thanks to Brian Poulson who represented CRAGS ( Climbing Resource Advocates for Greater Sacramento
- an Access Fund affiliate) and worked hard signing up new members. Finally, thanks to Pipeworks member Nick Wilson for his great photography.
Those that left early missed what some considered the highlight of the night: Jerry Miszewski, owner of Balance Community
slackline outfitters, set up a 25 foot highline through the middle of the main cave and effortlessly walked it like he was on flat ground. An extremely modest Jerry later admitted that he held the worlds record for highlining (312 feet) until August but his record had just been broken by his friend Andy (340 feet). He also confessed to plans of taking back the record as well as the lowline record (currently 1007 feet).
The next installment of TBS 6 will be at Great Western power Company on Friday October 22nd. See you there!
