Indoor Highline at Be Boulder Amsterdam

We are temporarily closed

Dear SlackNED members and highliners,

Last Saturday, April 23th 2022, an gear incident happened during one of the indoor highline sessions. During a leash fall of the highliner main line failure occurred and the highliner was caught by the back-up line. The highliner was able to get back to the anchor point unharmed but pretty shocked about the situation. Naturally also SlackNED and everybody involved where shocked about this incident. Preventing recurrence of this incident is taken extremely serious.

On Sunday, April 24th 2022, SlackNED started an investigation to the cause of the incident and made an ISA safety report. The conclusion of the investigation is that the mainline whipped against the yellow crane that was above the highline during the leash fall of the highliner. During a leash fall the slackline was launched up due to the tension. The sharp edges of the crane caused the main line to fail. Also the back-up line showed remnants of a collision with the crane. Fortunately it could still to the job it was rigged for.

At this moment all the indoor highlines of SlackNED are closed for this reason. We are looking for a good solution to open again as soon as possible and guarantee the safety of every highliner and those who are present. We hope that with this message everybody is informed sufficiently about the occurrences at the indoor highline.

Whaaaaat?! Highline, but indoors? Yep, it’s true!

In the Netherlands, it has become harder lately to practice our ultimate discipline: mid/highlining. We’ve been sent away from a couple of spots, but now we finally got a permanent line in Be Boulder, Amsterdam! 

Under the guidance of one of our instructors, you can practice for up to 3 hours on 2 different highlines. Your line time depends on the total amount of people that are present at the session. There is a maximum of 6 participants, shared over 2 highlines (25m and 41m). 

For this special installation, we have an expensive insurance with all kinds of certifications & a high deductible, for which we need to save money.

Our instructors are volunteers, and we hope to be financially stable enough with the highline to cover their travel costs.
