Speedflying Mt. Eiger.

Its a serious slope when you go up by helicopter instead of ski-lift. Its steep when you have to wear a parachute to schuss down. And its a treat when you can watch by helmet-cam from the comfort of your computer chair (but hang on tight). François Bon and Antoine Montant take us “speedflying” down Mount Eiger, from June 14th, the first speedflying run on this Swiss mountain ever. http://www.acro-base.com/fr/imgs/galerie/video/videos/eiger06/eiger06.mov -via Ursi’s blog

While I agree that the flying dude is more impressive from a speed-in-proximity-to-the-ground aspect, this one had a lot more rocks, any one of which could have grabbed a ski tip, certainly resulting in a severe wipeout.

I enjoyed it except for the really obnoxious song I hope I never hear again in my life.
