Very sad to hear. My condolences to his family and Friends. Does anyone know the exact height of the arch?

I wish they wouldn't sensationalize the titles of these articles.

whatever the height is - at least 45% elongation of rope. This type of business is not something you watch a video then rig and jump off and I honestly do not like the guys keep filming and using high sponsorship money or whatever to promote their fun online .

Keep it low key and keep it to yourself.

140' from top to base. The arch opening itself is about 110', giving an arch thickness of 30'.
