Extreme 102nd Birthday Celebrations

June 12th, 2013

Dorothy Custer this week celebrated her 102nd birthday in extreme fashion, by BASE jumping from a bridge in Idaho over Snake Valley river. Sounds pretty impressive, yeah?

Well, Dorothy wasn’t too enthralled by the stunt, professing that the jump was ‘too short’!

It certainly wasn’t from the sort of heights we’ve seen Valery Rosvov take to the skies but we think it’s still pretty inspiring stuff from Dorothy. See her in action here.

Don’t like heights? Look away

June 5th, 2013

UK adrenalin junkie, James Kingston, took risk taking to another level this week.

A POV video posted online this week shows James as he climbs up a 250 foot crane and proceed to dangle from the top of it. Not only that, he also uses just one hand to cling to the top of the crane, producing some stunning shots.

James announced that he ‘wanted to go up there to live, not die’. The mantra of many a nutter before him.

We felt a little queasy after watching this one!

This video comes with *Extreme Activity Hazard Warning Lights*

Rozov jumps from Mount Everest

May 29th, 2013

One of our favourite extreme sport characters is Valery Rozov. The rock-climber and wignsuit flyer extraordinaire has been seen on this blog a number of times, mainly jumping from mountains from ridiculous heights. This week saw him set yet another BASE jump world record.

Well, this time Valery has gone another step further, by jumping from the North face of Mount Everest. Never one to take the easy route, the ascent from the base camp to the jump location took four days to complete in adverse weather conditions.
7220 meters above sea level, this BASE jump became the world’s highest ever.

The jump was a fitting way to commemorate 60 years since the first ascent up the famous mountain.
