Jeb Corliss has posted up footage of his run-in with Table Mountain. The static images at the end are astonishing (as is the footage in general). But the stills taken at the point of impact really do highlight how brave/awesome/lucky he is! Absolutely frightening.
Some people might think he is stupid/foolish, but the guy just feeds at the edge. That's what drives everyone at the frontiers - from Einstein and Newton to Captain Scott and Damien Walters. It's where you feel most alive. It's an expression of self-awareness and self-understanding.
