Slacklining on campus

Author: 1 Comment Share:

The Daily Illini has an article on slacklining.

Slacklining is one of a few tangent activities related to climbing. Others include a technique based climb called bouldering. Bouldering does not use a rope but stays relatively close to the ground. The strength and power needed to boulder help a climber to solve problems in routing a climb. Usually bouldering is more difficult because it is lower and shorter than regular climbs.

  1. Articles about bouldering by nonclimbers are often written strangely and kind of illogically – bouldering is a “tangent activity related to climbing”!?
    On the same level as slacklining is related to climbing?
    Weird.
