Leap Of Faith – Base Jumper Parachutes 1200ft Off Iconic Scottish Peak
A base jumper has leaped 1200ft off an iconic Scottish mountain.
Josh Montane jumped off the Old Man of Storr in glorious sunshine back in January.
The ‘Old Man’ is iconic outcrop that dominates the Isle of Skye and is frequently scaled by ambitious climbers – despite it being 1200ft high.
Josh scaled the ‘Old Man’ before jumping off the summit with his ski’s and a parachute attached.
Fellow athlete Tim Howell said: “The low lying snow meant I was able to do a ski base jump from this cliff, the weather forecast predicted good conditions.
“Josh jumped from the cliff with ski’s and a parachute.
“The setting was so amazing, to be able to jump off a snowy mountain facing the ocean.
“The fact that Josh was able to complete the jump was an accumulation of years of experience and finally getting the right conditions.”
