Insane rope swing

Watch: Is this the world’s most insane rope swing?

Author: Rob Slade

Rope swings were always brilliant fun as a kid, and they’re just as enjoyable as an adult.

Whether it was a tattered rope tied to a tree over a river or a professional swing at an activity centre, there’s just a visceral joy about throwing yourself into the care of gravity with nothing more than a rope keeping you from ground zero.

Well, if you thought the shabby rope swing from your childhood was scary, wait until you get a load of this.

The video (below) comes from YouTube extraordinaire Devin Graham and showcases people launching themselves off of the clifftop while attached to a 400ft freefall pendulum rope swing between a slot canyon in America.

Yep, sounds pretty crazy right? We thought so too. In fact, we’ve been getting sweaty palms while watching it from the comfort of Adventure Travel HQ.

Check out the video below and let us know what you think.
