thanks, dingus, i learned a valuable lesson from that - when a hold breaks off in your hand it's best to place it back on the wall so that the next guy can experience the same thrill that you did...

that film put the shits up me even more than watching dan osman, which is saying something.

Herman looks like TM Herbert. Same hat. Same goofy expressions. Same base jumping skills.

What?!? Dulfersitz faster than I rappel with an atc? Pendulum on one pin with 2 other guys on the rope? These guys are insane, totally burly, and put me to complete shame. We're all total wusses.

Where does this scene fit into the history of BASE jumping, anyway? Anyone know?
