Feel like you’re part of the action with the first person view provided by the helmet camera worn by the B.A.S.E. jumper in this insane video.
The base jumper shows as how it’s like jumping off a mountain in a wingsuit and getting extremely close to rocks and trees, so close it seems he can touch them. Amazing song to go along with this great helmet cam footage makes this base jumping video a must see.

Great video of extreme BASE jumping off the legendary Eiger in the Swiss Alps with some helmet camera footage. The Eiger is one of the most impressive peaks in the Alps and over 3000m. Its ascent is very difficult, bein accomplished for the first time in 1858 by Charles Barrington.
These extreme BASE jumpers have some originality as they set up a tightrope across two peaks. They then proceed to tightrope walk to the center and BASE jump off the tighrope! There is some great wing wingsuit footage as the BASE jumpers drop down the Eiger.
This is a beautiful video with professional camera work as it’s done for National Geographic.

In this retro base jumping video, a group of base jumpers jump off one of the most famous rock formations, the 3000 foot, 910m high El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. El Capitan is also known as one of best rock climbing challenges. It is located in Nevada.
The video shows the group of base jumpers jumping off the rock formation. They take turns running down the top of the cliff as fast as the can and just diving head first off the ledge. It definitively takes balls of steal to be a BASE jumper back in the 80s. The BASE jumpers at first appear to be just falling into the forest, without any parachutes opening. In the second half of the extreme base jumping video, we see another view where the base jumpers are gliding to safety, with their parachutes open.
BASE jumping used to be legal in Yosemite National Park in the 1980s, simply requiring a permit. This however has ended and BASE jumping off the vertical rock formation that is “El Capitan” is now illegal. There still remains many people base jumping in Yosemite National Park in Nevada.
