International Slackline Association (ISA). Nathan Paulin managed to walk a staggering 2,200 meters (nearly 1.4 miles) across a highline which was rigged at approximately 100 meters from the ground. He accomplished the feat at Mont-Saint-Michel, a tidal island located in France, and it took Paulin nearly two hours to get all the way across.  (Insta360)"The feeling when I’m on the line… it’s almost impossible to describe it. Sometimes I feel really powerful when I do that, but sometimes I also feel really small and I feel like I’m nothing.

Even people free of vertigo fight their instincts here.
