Back in September, 22 daredevils lounged in hammocks suspended between two cliffs in the Italian Alps in a hair-raising stunt that took place at the Monte Piana Highline Meeting. The hammocks (16 in total) were suspended from a 164-foot-long double line, with two additional backup lines. Participants appear to have been tethered to the line with safety harnesses. The photos — taken by Sebastian Wahlhuetter — give a good sense of the gorgeous surroundings and the terrifying view down.

They make it look so easy! It does look relaxing :)
It must have been quite the job stringing all of those up and getting out there....you have tp look for it, but each person is attached to a safety cord. I like the one playing the ukulele.
