There is an even more impressive wingsuit feat, from China, where this guy flew right through a gigantic mountain cave. I will not post the Youtube link because some people on the Youtube comment board used a four letter word or two.

Yea, this guy also hit some rocks and spent a bunch of time in the hospital a couple of months ago. I'm pretty sure he also posted that video. I don't have too much sympathy.

Yup. While gliding down Table Mountain in Cape Town, he hit some rocks, broke both ankles, three toes, his fibula bone, tore his left ACL, and sustained a gash in his shin that required skin grafts to close.

Supposedly he's walking again, but I'm not sure if he resumed base jumping already...
