Trying to beat the camera timer when trying to replicate Harlin's classic photo in the summit of the Fou
In 4 tries this is the closest i got to be standing on the tip...

That looks absolutely bonkers!

Love it. Clearly loads better than the original. Far more dynamic. And such big air. Banzai!

Dude - get a friend on to take the photo for you.
Gets a 5 in my book - love the dynamics

I thought you were talking about base jumping to start with! Excellent shot. Its a rare compliment to get something better than the original.

Dan: I wish it was, that'd save a horrible descent... I did think it'd be a good spot for Base jumping. Here you can see the ledges above the face Any takers?

Love it, as already mentioned, I prefer tis over the original you were looking to replicate... looks crazy though :-)

This is far cooler than Harlin's classic photo.

Agree with others, cooler than the original, you may want to try a radio remote next time though! :-)
