Setting up a basic (“primitive”) slackline
(NOTE* This now exists as a video too)
WHAT: Rigging a 3:1 primitive slackline.
WHY: Because ratchets are lame, and this setup is cleaner, lighter, and fun.
HOW: This assumes you already have all the gear needed for a primitive setup. If you need to build a primitive setup, see: this link. We’re going to be using line lockers, which are discussed in detail here.
I’ve made some “print quality” flyers (one-page, front and back) for how to setup a 3:1. As I revise them, I’ll update them here (with the final version in 600dpi). View the medium-quality version of the current flyer…
