Are You Afraid of Heights | Mothership Spacenet

Every Thanksgiving, world-famous slackliner, 'Sketchy' Andy Lewis assembles the most jaw-dropping play toy – known as the Mothership Spacenet. The 'net' - suspended 400 feet above the canyon ground by 5 slacklines - is made up from thousands of elastic bands woven together into one gigantic web. In the middle of this web is a circle whereby BASE jumpers can exit the net. The Spacenet is only accessible by traversing in a harness from the cliff's edge.

This footage was taken in Moab, UT at the annual “Turkey Boogie” BASE and Highlining event. This footage shows the first jumpers to exit this incredible contraption. And, who better to exit first than the brainchild of the Spacenet… Sketchy Andy!

Try not to pass out!
