As a mountaineer, he gets to ascend steep climbs and enjoy the 360 degree view of the world.  But that’s not the only reason he climbs things.  He jumps off them.

One of the best natural high, is falling from high places, and of course with the assurance of safely landing down.  Tim gets to experience terminal velocity on a regular basis.

When asked where he wants to do his BASE jumps, he said in the mountains, the Swiss mountains to be exact.10894998_1423279001322311_14135560

BASE by the way is an acronym for places one could jump with a wingsuit; Buildings, Antennae (towers), Spans (bridges) and Earth (mountains cliffs).

And due to the fact that these places give you minimal amount of reaction time, makes it way more dangerous than skydiving.

“The Spyder Crane helmet I use is perfect. I need something that fits comfortably and is stable on my head when I fly at 120mph and on top of that it looks great. It’s light but above all it will protect me if I have a bad landing!” – Tim said when asked about the equipment he uses while at the air.
