Trying to beat the camera timer when trying to replicate Harlin's classic photo in the summit of the Fou

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?
Mr Lopez - 27/Aug/10Report
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.
