How Not to Rope Jump – Extreme Rope Jumping off Highlines!

Want to see how Ryan rigged a rope swing off a highline? He also had a nifty way of hauling people back up without them being attached to the haul line. This is high risk and only super experienced riggers should do this only AFTER they have jumped with someone who knows what they are doing. I’m hoping that showing you how to rig a rope swing will overwhelm you with how much detail goes into a safe rig and that someone doesn’t see a jump video and think they can clip 2 dynamic ropes to a highline and start jumping off cliffs. Please be careful and don’t try everything you see on Youtube!

Thank you Scott Hong for the thumbnail image!

Dan Osman has inspired many with his climbing and his rope jumping. Alex Honnold did a tribute to the late Dan Osman by repeating a speed free solo. I am paying tribute to Dan by repeating a rope swing he did at the Rostrum in Yosemite. Thank you Dan and Alex for your inspiration! Original free solo was in “Masters of Stone IV” Alex Honnold’s tribute – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mi4iR… Dan Osman’s Rostrum Rope Jump – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5olx8… Royalty Free Metal Music – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfGUn…
