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.
