Walking a Highline Above a Glacier in the Alps

Highlining hundreds of feet above a glacier in the highest mountains of Europe is absolutely insane—and captivatingly beautiful. Faith Dickey, Alain Custovic, Bernhard Witz, and friends rigged and walked 285-foot line between two rock spires in the Mont Blanc Massif.
