I caught this video over at Backcountry.com’s Goat Blog yesterday and wanted to share it here as well. It’s of big wall climber Dean Potter, as he makes an amazing free climb of the Eiger using a BASE jumping chute as his life line in case he falls. Potter has combined two of his major passions, rock climbing and BASE jumping, to ensure that he can get a the challenge of one, while using the other for safety purposes.
Some of the images in this video are simply stunning. Great stuff. I hope you enjoy.
