    Holy crap.
    The jump he makes at 1:10 actually make my feet tingle.
    That is insane.

    Hardly surprising that he died doing a similar extreme sport.

    This guy was freaking crazy.
    The stunt he invented was nuts.
    Basaically you tied two ropes off in parallel.
    Then you jumped from a cliff and tried to catch the ropes on your way down...if you missed...SPLAT.

    If I recall correctly he died at yosemite jumping off of el capiton performing this stunt.

    I'm sure somebody will correct me if I'm wrong.
