The Kuala Lumpur Tower is a nearly 1400 foot (421 meters) building in Malaysia.

It’s been the site of the KL Tower International Jump for the last two years (October) where more than 100 base jumpers hurl themselves off the tower and parachute (hopefully) to safety.

The video below is footage shot and compiled by Scotty Rogers and Andy Lewis of the MrSlackline YouTube channel.

Some pretty amazing stuff – and I was particularly struck by Rogers’ commentary at the very end of the video regarding human potential.

  1. Oh my! Not something I would ever contemplate doing because I am a fraidy-cat, but I was particularly amazed at the rope swing feats. The slackline option just plain terrifies me. And I am sure that if this was something I could actually convince myself to do, I would feel that I could do anything at all after that.

  2. From Down So Low
    To up so high;
    Oh my, oh my,
    Oh my, my.

  3. Looks absolutely terrifying – I love his last comment about releasing ourselves from the fear of death. Amazing.
