That would be sweet, but it's a long way off.

I just started messing around with slackroping in the past few days. (See this, this, and this for examples of experienced walkers, though the second two use wires rather than rope.) That's one hell of a challenge. There's a lot more side-to-side wobbling, which was the hardest part of slacklining, and the changing angle in the rope more than makes up for the lack of vertical bounce. It was extremely easy to set-up too, even easier than a slackline (which constantly needs to be retightened, regardless of how tight you pull the line).

I'll keep messing around with the slackrope for a while, and see how that goes and what can be done with it.
And yes, I'm actually holding that handstand. Get on my level.
