Every weekend people from all walks of life head together into the mountains, with one unifying goal.  They come together to test both their mental and physical limits by walking slacklines stretched between massive gullies.

Untethered is a film covering ground that has previously been left untouched.

This progressive documentary gives a rare glimpse into the mind and life of someone practicing a craft with the highest stakes imaginable.

“They are tethered in right?”

That’s the common question Highliners receive from bystanders who happen upon their mountain top playgrounds. The answer is Yes… Most of the time.

There is one highliner in particular who has a knack for walking these slacklines without a tether. His back up being his arms and legs.  That man is Spencer. He has progressed his abilities to a level few can even begin to wrap their minds around. Spencer has pushed himself to have complete mind and body control in order to conquer the discipline of free-solo highlinging.
