    Trying to figure out how far he fell. From his head-cam at 1:58 it appears well over 100 feet, but those fish-eye lenses can be misleading. Based on the time lapse, about 3 seconds - it could be 100.

    Ooooh, what a lucky man he was.

    A long way, anyway. You do that and you really want to land on something steep and slippery ...
