No one will blame you if you stop watching after Italian BASE jumper Uli Emanuele jumps off the cliff in the video below. But we couldn’t.

The incredible (and incredibly dangerous) leap almost didn’t happen. When Emanuele first spotted the site, he was doubtful the exit was even possible. But after three years of training and 45 hours of hiking up to the final jump site, he answered the question in spectacular fashion, captured in the video above by GoPro.
