Unbelievable! 18-Year-Old Daredevil Risks His Life To Perform This Daring Stunt (Photos)
A group of stuntmen have carried out what looks like an impossible task – flipping between rocks 1,200 feet above the picturesque town of Svolvær, Norway. Jarl Hernes Gåsvær, 24, captured the incredible video of his brother, Brage Hernes Gåsvær, 18, fearlessly flipping on the iconic Svolværgeita, the top of a popular climbing route.
Brage, a student from Oslo, climbed the summit with two others as another pair stayed behind to film. He said:
‘I wanted to do something that hadn’t been done before.’I asked my brother if he thought it was possible to flip between the two horns at the top, to which he replied ‘if anyone can do it you can’.’There is an ironically placed graveyard over 350 metres below so I could literally fall to my grave.
‘The plan was to do a test jump before the flip, but as I got to the top and visualised my surroundings, we counted to three and I just did it. ‘We all felt so pumped after I’d done it, there was a moment of extreme happiness.’
Brage’s brother, Jarl, was nervous at the prospect of his brother completing the flip. Jarl said:
‘Watching this was both horrible and amazing, considering that it was my brother performing the jump.’My hands were shaking the entire time. ‘I couldn’t believe how well the jump went, the stunt was performed perfectly. ‘After everyone climbed down we all went for a warm beer, now we’re looking forward to future stunts with our sponsor Jotunheim of Norway.’
