Video: Dean Potter BASE Jumps Pian dei Resinelli

Between presenting slideshows and speaking to audiences during a recent tour of Europe, Dean Potter found the time to take a leap from the previously unjumped Forcellino lookout near Lecco, Italy. Potter wrote on prAna's blog that Fabio Palma brought him to the spot, which sits at nearly 1,300 meters on the Pian dei Resinelli plateau. 

Dean's wingsuit feats will make another appearance at tonight's Sports Emmy Awards in New York; Sender Films is up for Best Camera Work for "Fly or Die," the First Ascent episode chronicling Potter's solo of and subsequent BASE jump off the Eiger.
