Last fall I was fortunate enough to BASE off Shovel Point and there were a number of people climbing who watched and I didn't get her name but one climber stopped and took pictures of the fun.

If anyone knows who that was that got the pictures I would really like to see them!

Thanks for the fun jump.

From cliff top to water the area the OP jumped from is around 100' tall. Needless to say it was a very technical and dangerous jump.

To be honest when I saw the OP just show up and get ready to do it I was mentally sorting thought the gear I had to determine if I would be able to do a rescue / body recovery.

Thanks! I recall she said she took a bunch of really good pictures that I was unable to look at as I was obviously busy swimming and climbing back out.

I believe it was closer to 150' as line stretch of my rig is around 80' while doing a rollover and I had enough time to fly out away from the cliff and turn and land.

I wish I could have seen it myself.

Thanks again!
