Daredevil BASE jumper performs outrageous mountain leaps

Tim Howell, a mountain athlete, completed a series of never-jumped BASE exits from a number of iconic Scottish mountain locations recently.Between January 27 and February 3, Howell, an Afghanistan combat veteran, jumped from the Storr Cliffs on the Isle of Skye, the north face of Ben Nevis and the Steall Waterfall in Glen Nevis.

All the jumps were achieved in the space of a week in harsh Scottish winter conditions on behalf of an outdoor clothing brand.Howell’s passion for BASE jumping has spanned over six years and taken in various famous landmarks around the world including Table Top Mountain in Cape Town, Trident du Tacul on Mont Blanc and the Grand Canyon in the United States.Howell became the first British person to complete a ski BASE jump, launching off the iconic Buachaille Etive Mor in Glencoe last winter, and is pursuing his ambition to becoming the first person to climb and jump all of the ‘classic’ six North Faces of the Alps.
