The “one-upper” scene is on a rise nowadays with YouTube challenges and extreme sports calling for people to break records. Well, cliff diver Laso Schaller rose to a particular challenge from Red Bull that will put him in the daredevil hall of fame.
The best way to set the mood of the stunt is from the video’s commentary,
“Remember the first time standing on a high-dive at your local pool? It was a little terrifying, right? Maybe 10 feet high? Imagine what it would be like to stand on a platform nearly 59 meters high (194 ft), taller than the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and perched on a cliff above a tiny natural pool of water.”
Yeah… no wonder no one has done this before…
But not to worry, with his “anything’s possible” attitude, Laso took on the challenge with confidence and accomplished what most of us couldn’t even begin to imagine actually doing.
