Extreme sports enthusiasts love to live on the edge by taking adrenaline pumping risks – but here’s one video that’s enough to scare the hell out of your average thrill-seeker.
Ace skier Cody Townsend who decided to take his sport to the next level by setting off down a narrow crevice separating a fractured peak of the Tordrillo Mountain Range in Alaska.
The Californian daredevil takes a few deep breaths before he sets off on the terrifying run. According to the man himself, it was 5 to 6 feet at its narrowest, leaving absolutely no margin for error as one wrong move could have proven fatal.
Townsend filmed the 30 second straight-line on his helmet – and there were also helicopters present and several other camera men.
Once he exits the crevice you can hear a scream of relief and it sounds as if he shouts ‘Holy f***’ as he celebrates defying death. His feat later won Best Ski Line of 2014 at the Powder Awards in Salt Lake City. Read more at The Boston Globe.
