BASE Jump Gone Bad

Apr 12, 2011
Outside Magazine

Think BASE jumping looks like fun? Watch this video, and you might change your mind.

The jumper wearing the helmet cam appears to attempt a backflip off a rock spire, but lands on the rock he just leapt from. He then deploys his parachute as he rolls into free fall and bounces off the cliff on the way to the ground. And the landing is no picnic, either.

We at Outside would like reaffirm our sincere hope that safety is your biggest priority in all of you outdoor pursuits.
