An international crew of base jumpers spent 10 days in November, 2006 looking for the longest wingsuit flights they could find.
After jumping the The Eiger's North Face, the group found an even bigger cliff, where one jumper broke the record for the world's highest base jump (2000-meters, 6560 feet). Some came up a bit short, flying as close as 20 feet to the cliffs.
