World’s Most Insane Rope Swing

by Mike Smith on March 1, 2013

One year ago, Devin Graham filmed his daring crew jumping from Corona Arch (in Arches National Park near Moab, Utah) to swing on a 100-foot rope. If that wasn’t thrilling enough, they topped it this year by creating a 400-foot rope swing between two cliffs.

The location was undisclosed and described as “the tundra,” but again, it looks like somewhere in Southern Utah. The film was made after several days of camping in temperatures close to zero. The giant slot canyon rope swing was rigged by professionals at Slackline Media. Another interesting feature of the video was the aerial shots. These clips were filmed with a camera attached to a remote-controlled helicopter called the octocopter.

Writing this I asked myself if I had the guts to do it. I think “yes,” but wonder if I would hesitate in the moment. That’s probably what makes these guys/gals different. For a moment they silence the fears and jump. No regrets. So, if all your friends jumped off a cliff, would you?
