Base Jumper Alexander Polli Soars 10 Feet Above Ground to Hit Target

Alexander Polli flew down the side of a perfectly fine cliff and soared 10 feet above the ground to hit a target. 

No big whoop. 

This video (h/t BroBible) features the base jumper attempting to see how much control one can have as they fly through the air in a wingsuit. 

It's one thing to fly through a crevice—something we already find quite amazing—but another to actually hit a target as you blast through the sky at an astonishing 155 miles per hour.

Apparently, you can be very precise. Polli ends up explaining that he was supposed to come down the mountain and hit the target that stood 10 feet above the ground. 

He does just as he explains, clipping the pole with his left hand, flying through unaffected by the blast. 

I look forward to seeing where this takes Polli and his colleagues. He mentions that accuracy and the ability to determine where you go is the next step in the sport. 

Being that I get a little weary on a ladder, I will go ahead and stay amazed from the confines of of the seat in front of my computer.

Death is but a few feet below Polli as he soars above the ground. One move sends him to where he wants to go. You have to think one minor misstep would've send him to disaster. 

Hit me up on Twitter for more extreme.
