First ISA Safety Standard Published

2020-03-04T03:24:09+01:00

ISA:21 Highline Systems What is a highline? The ISA:21 Highline Systems Standard is a formal engineering definition and description of what a highline is and what the various components it consists of are. In addition to that, it also defines the forces that are acting upon the webbing, anchors and the highliner. In essence, it is a lot of fancy words, but it allows our partners and testing laboratories to communicate more effectively.

Bolting and Highlining in Norway

2017-06-24T19:03:09+02:00

Norway, Kjeragbolten Norway provides some of the most picturesque landscapes for highlining, and as such, has become a bucket list item for many among the highline community. A recent highlining expedition to Norway, however, has reported stumbling against the local bolting ethic. To provide clarity to the community, we are passing on information from a Norwegian climbing association. These ethics should be adopted for highlining in the country. In general, bolts should not be placed in the mountains but only on sport climbing cliffs Bolts should not be placed on lines which are possible to climb with natural protection [...]
