Project Description

Mohammad Reza Abaee

Mohammad Reza Abaee, Iran Team Lead

Mohammad’s photos of Iranian highlines inspired the first US & Iran highline project and the beginning of Crossing Lines.

In 2012, Mohammad learned to slackline by watching videos online. Later that year, highliners from the team traveled to Iran for a climbing festival and brought a highline rig. Mohammad impressed them with his determination and they donated their highline equipment to his continued development in a country limited by sanctions.

Mohammad recently opened a climbing gym in his home town in Iran.
