High Bar Base Jump Epic Fail

Baxter
Posted October 15, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

Norwegian base jumper, Richard Henriksen took to this high cliff in his home country to integrate the grace of high bar gymnastics with ball-to-the-walls parachuted leaps off high peaks.

Unfortunately he may have opted to save to a couple of bucks buying a high bar made in China, because after a few swings above this majestic drop, the device would force Henriksen to make a premature dismount...down the cliff.

Thankfully, his parachute deployed and he lived to tell the tale. The high bar, however, got its just deserts, plunging down to a rock-solid abyss.

Check it out from another angle below.
