Scraping their fingernails on the ledges at 100MPH

This club of base jumpers goes to the top of the mountain and they jump off a cliff with wing suits on. They glide down their mountain at near-terminal velocity hugging the contours of the mountain, trying to keep at least five feet (I’m sure they’d say one and a half meters) from the mountain. This means they aim to get to about five feet from the mountain outcroppings, bridges, boulders, or trees at their full speed. Far and away the most amazing and dangerous base jumping stunt I’ve seen.

Prepare to be thrilled and to hold on to something a little tighter than you were before watching it.

Would you ever?

I wouldn’t. I have kids.
