On September 9, 2014, 22 people nestled into 16 hammocks for one epic chillout session. Photographer Sebastian Wahlhütter was on hand to capture the day’s events which took place on Monte Piana, in the famous Dolomites mountain range of northeastern Italy.

In a recent blog post, Wahlhütter explains:

This special set up was rigged with 1,000 kg of pre-tension and reached 2,350 kg of total work load after 22 people in 16 hammocks volunteered for this epic session… The setup was a 50m (164 ft) double line with two additional static ropes (double double) as a back up + a load of anchors on each side. Force measurement was done and monitored live.

 

The concept was the brainchild of Igor Scotland of Ticket to the Moon Hammocks. The goal was to bring together the slackline/highline community and have a fun day out on the mountain.
