This looks amazing! Anyone ever done it or something like it before?

sorry folks, a little looking and i see this is just link spam. you can find the video using google if you're really curious...though i'm pretty sure that is not the "world's biggest rock swing"

I have a feeling Arches National Park might not be fans of that kind of lifestyle. :grlaf:

 

Corona Arch - which is on BLM managed land so climbing on it is legal:

You can rappel from it as well: http://climb-utah.com/Moab/corona.htm

 

Looks like another big way to ruin a big sandstone arch.

 

Set up five big bolted anchors and enjoy all da scooby-doo-ing!

 

"Yee ha! Look at me! Weeeeeee!"

 

Thoughtless goof-balls!

I can't help but feel that there's a group of you that are ban wagon bitchers. I've watched this in thread after thread. One guy post something then someone finds a way that it goes against there so called climbing code. Then BOOM! Open the flood gates to the bitch fest. Your threads are like my people magazine, I just get hooked.

JosephH, you crack me up; I did not know BASE jumping was so safe relative to rope swings. What is the point of your link? You selling Petzl gear? Side question, have you ever climbed above a small microstopper?

 

To the OP, the production of the video is certainly strange; I definitely felt like I was supposed to buy something. Like was said earlier in the thread, this must be a self-promotion/portfolio project...

 

edit to say - i see the link is put in there CC.com - oops - disregard.

I like bitching about spelling.

I think we should try to find a place at Beacon where we can set up a swing like this, way to much fun!!!

wayne told a story a long time ago about doing just that, i think though it was on the now-verbotten east side - seem to recall them do progessively bigger n' bigger swings until someone ate it into the trees at the end of the arc :)
