Daredevils on the cliffs of Yosemite Park

In California’s Yosemite National Park, a new breed of daredevil climbers practice the sport of free soloing — rock climbing without a rope and relying solely on hands and feet wedged into the cracks to ascend the park’s massive granite obelisks.

Fine line between life and death

The slackline walker – who is also a rock climber – Dean Potter carried out death-defying stunts at Yosemite National Park last year. The specially-designed rope is known as a ‘slackline’ and is considered to be more challenging than a conventional tightrope as the line is not completely taut, therefore susceptible to bouncing and stretching.
