Jeb Corliss, perhaps the most famous wingsuit flier in the world, successfully completed a wild stunt called “The Flying Dagger” in China last weekend.
Corliss jumped out of a helicopter, piloted himself toward Mount Jianlang, and flew through a narrow crack in the face of the mountain at a full speed of 122 miles per hour. The crack was 15-feet wide at the bottom and 60-feet wide at the top. The area he passed through was 30-feet wide, according to Outside Magazine.

He called it the “gnarliest” flight of his career when it was all over.

Here’s the full video. The action begins at the 4-minute mark:
