Base jumping Smellveggen to lower ladder

Smellveggen to Lower Ladder – uncut

Here’s a little flashback to last summer in Norway. Just wanted to share the feeling of base jumping off the edge, flying from Smellveggen exit to landing at the Lower Ladder landing area. So the video and sound is uncut from my gopro, to share my point of view. At the exit I was trying to convince my friend Martin, who jumped with me, to land in the water just for the fun of it – but he did not seem very hooked on this particular idea.

The year before I actually decided myself to test out the Lysefjord water temperature. Take a look at these screen grabs from the video – sorry about the poor quality, but I decided to leave my Canon 5D behind on this jump.

I wish this little red boat would have driven the opposite way…would have been fun to try and land on it with my Atair Troll DW base jumping canopy

If you want to see the waterlanding in the Lysefjord, it is the last part of this video from 2011:
