Over 100 million Super Bowl viewers watched Andy Lewis jumping on a slackline during the halftime show. Yesterday, I had the honor of watching him send his latest creation, “Leviathan,” for the first time.

Leviathan is a  285-foot slackline strung between the Echo and Cottontail towers of the Fisher Towers located outside of Moab, Utah.

The height of the line is approximately 900 feet. This makes Leviathan the highest/longest slackline in the world. Andy estimates the tension of the line between 1600-1800 lbs. It’s a good thing he is using a “Gibbons” slackline.
