@JoshRoss:

Very impressive indeed, but I wonder what the value of doing something that has not been done is: with all this technology, I think we have lost the sense of adventure.

I have much greater respect for those who dedicate their little spare time to their smaller adventures. Achievements made by nonprofessional athletes who make huge sacrifices to push their limits have much greater human and personal value. Professional and devildare should not be two words that go together IMHO.

In the end this will only be good marketing for Red Bull and the like, but it will not profit the BASE community that will be stereotyped in the wrong way in front of the general public.
