Avatar, Jester. Thanks for the info. I figured as much. I still would not put a rope through that kind of abuse on a regular basis and continue to trust the integrity. But hey that’s me.

Many safe jumps to you.

Any time, and many thanks.

Actually, the static rope holds up surprisingly well. Better than you'd think in fact. The 500 jump limit was in place for safety's sake...no point in taking unneccessary chances. ;)

Slightly off topic, but I'm sure the owner of this hotel would be happy for people to rap jump off it given what they are trying to achieve...

You have to laugh though, building a hotel with a climbing wall on the outside in Cape Town...

Surely they can see the mountain from the wall? But then again, different strokes.
Have Fun...

Hey Avatar

Have you ever rap jumped with those blue lights that they put under a ford cortina, fitted to your helmet. That would be cool hey. Please post those photos. We know you have then.

YEAH Marshall, that's the spirit. Careful tho, Justin might delete your post because of \"lack of relevance\". You see, he wants to police this forum and make every individual here conform to his standards and likings. We are losing our voices.

to add to this, Avatar, just show them the photos of you okes doing it tandem eh!..oh and those cool ones wif you okes dressed in spiderman suits...CCCOOOOOOLLLLL...but, being RELEVANT to the photos posted...my comment directed at the photos is that I love the \"torch and shades\" vibe!

Thanks Justin, we love you so much.

ROTFLMAO!

Post them? To be perfectly honest, I wouldn't want to be the person taking them. Or anywhere near any place that they were being taken. :lol: Even I have my limits, depraved and twisted as I am. :twisted:
