On March 23, 2011, Brian French and Will Koomjian set off on an unprecedented 1 km canopy trek through an old growth Oregon White Oak forest. Their journey would involve packing all their equipment and belongings with them, traveling unsupported, and never touching the ground. For the next 5 days, Brian and Will would endure the predictably unpredictable Oregon spring weather, battle fatigue, and face seemingly impossible gaps of over 100 feet between trees. Their success would depend on choreographed teamwork, some innovative tools and techniques, and a fair bit of luck.
