Well it might be a giant advert but I don’t mind, that video is stunning and the jumps are really impressive! Well done!

Cheers

I agree, Advert but still great shots, I believe the climb was ‘Promised Land’ VI/6 on Beinn Dorain, Mike posted a pick on his facebook page the other day.

Not as fragile as the jumper-chap's crampon attaching! :-o

Nice film, I still find base a bit alarming though. Wasn't it Emmett who retired from doing it after just seeing too many friends die? Tommy at Jöttnar said that sponsoring the canopy turned out to be one of their best marketing moves because the footage was so great and dramatic it got showed on news websites and maybe even on actual TV all around the world - Scotland looking at its best!
