World's largest ropeswing (?)

Postby Baarb » Fri May 11, 2012 2:13 am

Climbing an arch in Utah and jumping off. Repeatedly. Any takers?

This arch is a constant topic of conversation over at Bogley canyoneering forum.

Last year, some group made a video and did not even notice the core shot in their rope.

Funny thing was, when I opened the link to the video in the OP I got a pop-up ad for a funeral plan!



As far as I know this one is the world's longest rope swing.



Those folks in Utah could very well have the world's longest "home made" one though.
What is this "scientific method" you speak of?

No chest harnesses of any kind...very stupid.

The swing does look fun though!
