90 Seconds of Fear: Hayley Ashburn Meditates at 2,800 Metres
Before walking a 52 meter highline at 2800 altitude in mid winter, Hayley was asked about fear.
She replied with her favorite quote from Frank Herbert’s “Dune”.
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.” That’s the mantra of American, Hayley Ashburn, as she walks a 170-foot highline between outcroppings in the wintry Dolomites.
Hayley Ashburn currently lives inbetween Moab Utah, and Yosemite Valley. She is an established highliner, climber, rigger, and is beginning to learn the ways of skydiving and BASE jumping. She travels the world year round helping push the sports she loves, voicing her opinions on ethics and the future of our sports, and the focus of including and inspiring women in outdoor sports. The film was an official selection at Mountainfilm 2018.
