In October 2018, Friedi and his team of friends Aidan Williams, Lukas Irmler, Ryan Jenks, Kimberly Weglin, Kyle Lovett and Zollie Goodman went on a two week long trip to the world famous Yosemite Valley in California, USA. They set up and walked eight of the world’s most spectacular and most alpine highlines. Friedi got the first ascent of a 296m long new line at Taft Point, which is currently the longest line ever rigged in the entire valley. He also became the third person in the world to free solo both the 15m and 35m long highlines that lead up to the famous Lost Arrow Spire, a granite pillar peaking at almost 1000m above the valley bottom.
