Weekend Whipper: Cliff Strike!

06-Dec-2013


Since the days of huge enchainments in the Alps first executed by paragliding, climbers have long embraced a fast means of decent. And BASE jumping has now become the fastest. But moving fast through the air leaves little margin for error, and sometimes things go wrong ... as you can see in this amazing close call. According to the video's poster on Vimeo, the jumper suffered a compression fracture of the T12 Vertebra, five stitches to the eye, six stitches to the chin, and a severely sprained back, wrist and hand. Plus multiple bruised areas.
