Here we are in Geyikbayiri, Turkey, 7-13 February 2013 for the first Turkish Highline Carnival in the country! Over ten nations are represented amongst the "artists" making this event happen and the Turkish stand strong for being so unfamiliar to the sport.
A total of 15 lines from 10 to 100 meters were established,11 of which were stretched across the top of the grey limestone and the orange and red tuffa walls of Geyikbayiri. The campgrounds, usually filled with climbers, were highjacked by over 60 highliners from beginners to pros whom blended in style amongst the climbers.
Alexander Schulz set the standard in Turkey and walked 105 meters line, the longest highline walked in Turkey.
The idea of organising an event for highlining was very enthusiastically
welcomed by the locals of this popular climbing winter destination and is giving European highliners a sunny highlight to their cold winters.
