It was BASE jumper Mario Richard who accomplished this feat last week; he jumped from Moab's cliff known as Dragon's Nest, and managed to maneuver himself to the top of the King Fisher - one in a group of rock spires known as the Fisher Towers. It's challenging enough trying to steer a parachute to the ground, let alone a spot just 25 feet long and 6 feet wide.
The triumphant moment was short lived because Richard continued downward shorty afterwards, for the second part of his BASE jump to the ground. "You actually get to land and there's people all excited because they saw it happen and they're there to share the emotion and for the first few minutes," Richard told Utah's Fox 13 News. The well-deserved excitement amongst his peers was earned though; his feat didn't come without practice. "There's so much joy and you bask in accomplishing this thing you've been working at," he continued.
