The Raouché rocks, better known to tourists as the Pigeon Rocks, have seen plenty of aspiring climbers and divers attempt, and succeed, to conquer them. Red Bull Lebanon decided it was time to raise the bar and conquer the Rocks in an even more challenging way.
Young extreme sports professional Alex Mason was set a test by world slacklining expert Andy Lewis: to cross a highline 40m above the sea, between the two rocks, and back.
While Mason has tackled some difficult slacklines before, his biggest challenge in Beirut was keeping his concentration – between the wind, the waves, the passing boats, and loud construction work from the shore, he had his work cut out for him.
It’s going to be more of a psychological challenge for me at this point, the big obstacle for me on this project is going to be getting over my fear of exposure… – Alex Mason
To see if he managed or not, watch the video below!
