This looks super painful fun!

To really appreciate the beautiful filming and the truly wild abandon of the jumpers, play this bad boy full screen in high res.

Here we have a super-pimpin’ video of a guy named Dean Potter practically jogging up The Nose of El Capitan:

I am no climber, so I can’t comment on just how studly this acheivement is in the context of the climbing world, but the guy’s face around 1:17 should give you some idea.

Does this look like fun or what? Apparently it is part of a new “fitness movement.” Rock climbing and swimming and jumping and hanging from trees?
