Totem Pole Tasmania highline


The video of Lukas Irmler walking across a highline above the Totem Pole in Tasmania.

Tasmania in its wildest beauty, seen from another point of view: from an extraordinary highline. Like the one rigged above the Totem Pole, which for many climbers is the symbol of this island to the south of Australia as it is here that Paul Pritchard had his terrible climbing accident in 1998. In this short clip filmed by Simon Bischoff it is Lukas Irmler who walks the line high above the famous sea stack.
