For those of you itching to see more gorge jumping, I present another video (5 MB). This one is of some random Australian guy doing the backwards-fall jump. Freaky.

(I apologize in advance for my having filmed the jump with my camera turned 90 degrees. I thought I could easily fix it to make it right-side-up, but I haven’t a clue how. So get ready to turn your head a bit.)
