GRAVITY / LINE
Gravity remains the one fundamental force of the universe that is not fully understood. Isaac Newton came up with an equation that lets us predict how things behave in the presence of gravity, but an explanation of what causes this force to exist remains absent. Rather than trying to understand the why of gravity, GRAVITY / LINE aims to be an expert of dancing with it.
Our origins lie in the tradition of rock climbing, but our path has weaved its way into the vast world of technical rope work. We are instructors, engineers, and rope rescue professionals with a deep passion for the mountains.
