Circus stunt or the act of having an unbelievable amount of fun walking and doing tricks on a piece of webbing pulled tight between two points, also used as a form of meditation, physical and mental training. You've no doubt seen the likes of bad boy Dean Potter doing it in one of those high-energy American climbing videos or in a Patagonia advert. Will it now take off in the UK?
