Video: BASE jumper hits cliff and captures entire jump on GoPro camera

This BASE jumper was blown back into the cliff immediately after throwing his parachute. He captured the failed attempt on a GoPro camera.

Thankfully, the jumper survived. According to his Vimeo account, injuries sustained from the cliff strike were a compression fracture of the T12 vertebra, a sprained back, hand and wrist, 11 stitches, and bruising.

Below is harrowing footage of the ill-fated jump.
