Looking for a little adrenaline-pumping activity without getting off the couch?
On Nov. 15 Frenchman Théo Sanson traveled 1,640 feet of slackline between two rock formations in Castle Valley, Utah.
The equivalent of four football fields, Sanson was suspended 400 feet into the air with no safety net and only a harness.
The two-minute clip features sweeping shots of the surrounding valleys as Sanson wobbles precariously above the valley below.
The attempt was captured by videographers at Camp4Collective in "Across the Sky."

Mention of "no safety net" for dramatic purposes. If there was a safety net, and he slipped and fell, he wouldn't have landed in the safety net, since he was harnessed to the wire.

It would have been more impressive with NO harness and only a safety net.
The harness negates pretty much all the danger.
